Was below average. None of the lights were set up as Christmas. They were just flowers and bugs outlines. There are a lot better Christmas light displays.

The Arboretum is one of favorite places to walk, not so much for exercise but just to talk and enjoy the seasonal flowers, plants and landscaping. They do have special events and in December they have some beautiful light displays that attract many families. Our...More

The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The gardens are home to many species of plants and flowers and the grounds have pretty rocks, fountains and sculptures. Definitely a nice way to spend an hour or two to unwind and reconnect with nature!

Regardless of the season, the arboretum is a lovely place to visit. Their Christmas light display isn't to be missed. The flowering annual and perennials are beautiful, and of course the arborists and volunteers provide excellent information, classes and special events.

This is a great place to walk or just relax and read a book. The thousands of tulips in the spring and mums in the fall really add to the park. Christmas is outstanding with all the lights, really great for kids.
