“Run down; poor signage”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We were there for less than 10 minutes. Granted the place is free, but it’s hardly worth the drive. Most of the signs are so faded you can’t read the names of the trees. The trees are in need of heavy pruning/cleanup. Looks like the city or whoever owns this has simply run out of funds to maintain this property. Do yourself a favor and drive 15 minutes up the road to Wakodahachee Wetlands. There you’ll see natural vegetation and wonderful wildlife

“Nice and quiet.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

A nice and quiet nature walk/run. Price is free which is always a good thing. Nice flowers and plants. My only issue was that the Asian area was great but over-grown...I wish it would of been kept up more..def a peaceful place for mediation

“Just right for an enjoyable short walk”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

As arboretums go, it is on the small side, but that is part of the attraction. You follow one main path through the whole park and it is just right for those who can't or prefer not to get into a long walk. Plenty of pretty trees and flowers. Also has a playground area. We enjoyed it.

“Small nice park.”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

This park must have started with great potential. It's still very nice but seems like there is little funding to maintain it. There is a nice walking path and 100's of trees labeled. Only problem is the labels are all faded topping over and many unreadable. I still enjoyed the walk through and was nice for a 45 minute break.

“Favorite Park”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

I work nearby and I love to visit the Arboretum whenever I can. It is a beautiful park with many places to sit and enjoy yourself (bring a yoga mat, or picnic lunch, something to draw with, etc.).
