  • As it happened, I was given an surprisingly detailed tour by a friend who knew the arboretum very well. There are an amazingly broad range of trees that are non-native, but have flourished there.  more »
  • 60 minutes is good to check out the grounds - 2 hours if you want a full hike. Family friendly, no dogs. Free.  more »

  • Worth the stroll, free entrance! For a bus stop you have to walk 2km. Limited information, but good trails and viewpoints. Lots of different trees.
  • Nice natural site. Needs better care
