  • I always love a trip to the OP arboretum! The hiking trails are so fun and dog friendly. My dog loves to come with me and enjoy the nature. I also love getting to walk around the pond and see all the beautiful plants and flowers. I appreciate that they are labeled so I know what the plants are! There are usually fun additional events going on, and they’re currently working on improvements to make it even better. If you haven’t gone yet, then you’re missing out!
  • Beautiful and peaceful, an oasis in the midst of busyness and noise, this is a lovely place to walk, or to sit and contemplate. The displays of blooming flowers are breathtaking, and varied. Every time I come, there is something different to see. The walking trails are inviting, with several options ranging in length and difficulty. There are so many things to enjoy, from the delightful colors, the pond and fish, to the artwork along the paths. A delightful and beautiful place!
