“Walk in the Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

This is a very pleasant arboretum to explore the beauty of nature. Watching the ducks and turtles in the pond, to bird watching. This is a great location to go to a park with a little more of nature exploration.

“Our wedding site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

After 11 years all our friends and family still go on about how lovely the JMU-EJC Arboretum was and that it made for the most memorable wedding they can remember. It's reasonably accessible for people of all ages and physical abilities, and the trails are very well maintained. In addition to all the lovely plants and birds you'll see everyone from co-eds to cyclists to strolling retirees having a leisurely time of it here. My wife and I often return (to the scene of the crime) for a romantic picnic.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

They have many trails that are a lot of fun. They are a little on the small side though.
