This is a beautiful year round park. Lots of streams and trails to walk. Great place for a picnic or just walking around. more »
I've been coming here since I was a little girl and I love it every time. So many trails to hike, lots of wildlife and little to no trash in the arboretum which is always a plus. I definitely reccomend the arboretum if you're looking for some peace and quiet or if you have young ones you'd like to have fun with, they have a nature center with activities!
The auto trail was pretty and we liked how they labeled the trees with their types. The children's nature scape area was also pretty neat. The hiking trails were over grown and covered in poison ivy however, so we gave up on them pretty quick.
