The arboretum is outstanding, serene, and always changing. Special exhibits of sculpture, etc. are always inviting. The birdhouse in the tree tops is great fun for children. Food and gift shop are small but sufficient and reasonable priced,

A lovely space to walk, meditate, relax and enjoy a respite from the crowded residential areas that surround this exquisite garden area. The park is available and suitable for events such as Weddings.

If you love nature and beauty, this is the place for you. Tree covered rolling hills, with the trees labeled. Imaginative and creative twig sculptures look like you have landed in a magic world. A joy to behold!

Beautiful Arboretum on any day and the Holiday Garden Railway is delight in the light of day. Add the sparkle of christmas lights, Carolers and hot chocolate and it becomes a winter wonderland - even in this unseasonably warm weather.

We go to this garden a few times a year because it's always beautiful and always different. My favorite spot is the fernery, a tiny conservatory with rocks, paths, loads of ferns and a koi pond. Always nice and warm, so a perfect winter stop....More

As far as arboretum's go, I thought it was perfectly normal. It was the miniature train sets that blew me away. A whole section of the park was devoted to various train tracks weaving through trees and other foliage, with lovely custom bridges and other...More

If I recall correctly, the big treehouse with the nets is not entirely accessible. In general, though, it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
