  • My husband, dog, and I walked the Chesapeake Arboretum trails for the first time today. We wanted fresh air and, due to COVID-19, not many people. We got it and loved it. The camellias were blooming.....  more »
  • Beautiful and relaxing. It is a nice escape away from the chaotic world today. Our dogs love the trails. Just bring your bug spray!  more »
  • Beautiful, but entrance off the road, has a stream with groundwater and rainwater that smells more like sewage. Homestead area is pretty. Bob, a master Gardener there, was super welcoming and friendly. Two thumbs up. Go visit :)
  • Beautiful nature trails. Took my son there in his stroller and was able to explore quite a bit. Can't wait until he's a little bit older so we can see the rest!
