Atleast once a week we come here to get out and walk around. There are so many choices of paths and walkways every visit is a new adventure. The kids love it because they can almost choose their own adventure! This is great exercise for our dog also. You're in the city, but feel far away from it. We love... More

If you are planing to go to Jacksonville, you have to go to this Museum. There offers some exhibitions and there are so beautiful English and Italian gardens. The view from the garden is amazing. The price per ticket per adult - 10 USD.

My wife and I work in the landscaping field and like to visit gardens and arboretums to see plants that are not native in our area. Normally we find at arboretum's most, if not all, the plants are marked or labeled. At Jacksonville Arboretum we found less than 10% of the plants labeled. The one's that were labeled were the...

I LOVE SQUIRRELS, you see them everywhere. Went on a long walk through all the trails. It's very windy and more of the same again and again but if you like a calm walk through what feels like the middle of a huge forrest, its perfect.

This is a nice arboretum. It has trails and maps and I love how it shows about how many steps each is for kids and adults. Easy to spend a short or longer while at. Beautiful and diverse nature. Parking was easy and it's easy to get to. Nice place to spend some time in nature, walking, sitting, or otherwise.... More

We have visited the Arboretum many times, over many seasons. Lots of parking available. Several well marked nature trails to choose from. Picnic area. Covered areas for family gatherings can be scheduled. The plant life is abundant and well marked. There is even a record sized tree within park. Bathroom (co-ed) was available.

The Jacksonville Arboreteum & Gardens is a beautiful place. The plants are so neat, and their associated signs are excellent for learning more about them and the landscapes. The trails are very well maintained as well. I visited with my dog and saw several other dogs there. There was also a doggy water bowl so dogs can stay hydrated. It... More

I went thru alone....didn't get to experience the whole thing...but from what I saw, I liked and would come back again to visit. I love the price and I am a plant buff.

This Arboretum is cared for by volunteers -- and they deserve a huge "thank you" for their wonderful effort. They have made a good effort to label and identify many of the plants. The paths are sandy and very easy to traverse. SIgnage warns about alligators, but we did not see any. The arboretum closes strictly at 5pm. There are... More
