“Arboretum visit nice visit for tree and plant lovers”

Bickelhaupt Arboretum
Ranked #3 of 19 things to do in Clinton
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 September 2016

I have been to a couple other arboretums in Iowa so that kind of spoiled this for me, as they are a lot nicer. However, this one was free and I had to pay for the others. I think if they did have people pay like $2.00 and take donations, they could make some improvements like more walking paths, so you don't have to walk down slippery hills when the grass is wet in the am like when we went. Also it is not handicapped accessible very far into it. Also the water fall was not working which was kind of a bummer. There also was the tour guide... a white and black cat that wanted constant attention. But they do have some lovely flowers, trees and plants. A nice diversion while visiting Clinton.

The Arb is my favorite place in the whole city! I love to walk through the beautiful grounds that feature over 2,000 trees, shrubs and conifers of all sizes. Birds of all kinds call this 14-acre gem home. Stop by anytime from dawn until dusk every single day of the year to wander this well cared for and treasured outdoor museum. It's free and all ages and abilities are welcome.

Our son took his prom date to the arboretum for pictures. A tribute to the beauty of the place was the fact that there must have been a couple hundred people there. Boys in tuxes, girls in gorgeous dresses and family and friends all posing or taking pix. It was beautiful. Just a wonderful place to spend an hour or more among some of Gods most beautiful gifts.

Good way to see different species of plants, especially Hostas. Not as pristine and well kept as it has been in the past but still worth a look!
