We came here for the gingerbread competition. We come every year for this and it always seems to get better and better. This arboretum has so much to offer...hiking trails, special programs and really beautiful landscapes. We will always come back here for more fun

It is truly the way my garden looks in my dreams. The staff is so helpful. There are many different programs that are held each year. It is a treasure.

Wonderful walking trails. Exotic and varied trees, plants and flowers. They have good exhibitions. A bit of country in the suburbs!
