The arboretum is conveniently located across from Commowealth Stadium just off of the UK campus. Lovely relaxing walking trails through many different varieties of trees, bushes and flowers. Very, relaxing and peaceful. Well worth the stop.

Great walking paths, lots of different plantings to examine, close and convenient parking, even a walking path through some wooded areas where you can experience poison ivy if you're not careful. Dogs on leashes are welcome.

The arboretum is small and enjoyable, especially if you have children. The children's garden is probably one of the best I've seen. They have added an amazing train section and have other various activities that invite kids to enjoy nature. Since I live in Lexington, I have seen it evolve over the past few years, and I can honestly say they work hard to improve it year after year.

We visited the University of Kentucky Arboretum right before sunset during the month of April and it was so beautiful and peaceful. They are so many little paths and trails that you always feel like you are in your own private garden (great romantic walks). Some open up to courtyards with fountains, trees, gazebos. Very nice spot for a picnic or even a proposal!

great place to walk, run or just lounge around and watch people walking their dogs. There are numerous trails and must be nice in summer, have a picnic on a sunny day.
