  • Lovely park. Small, quaint. Thanks to the Marquandt family who donated it. Very thoughtful gift now the public can enjoy this arboretum. Interesting trees from all over the world planted throughout
  • Really fabulous time. It gets a little chilly under the big trees so bring an extra sweater or blanket. Kids will make new friends, get their toes in the sand without having to go to the beach and make memories. It is relaxing for parents to read while kids play. We enjoyed the small walk/ trails as they were perfectly manicured and the trees are all labeled to teach kids.
