I'm new to Spokane, and this is one of the first places I visited (end June). First, as others have mentioned, the photo is not of the arboretum. The grounds are large, and I probably spent 2.5 hours walking at my leisure and taking photos. There are many very mature, beautiful trees that are grouped in kind. The grounds are a perfect mix of maintained yet "wild." The creek is my favorite part. My only criticism is that the specimens are not labeled well enough. Also, a big downside for me is the I-90 traffic and airport flight path noise - it was NOT peaceful sounding in my experience, but very noisy (and I hail from one of the largest cities in the country). It is very peaceful to look at, but the city noise was a distraction through at least half the park. I'm sure this is a modern problem, since the arboretum was established over 100 years ago. I had no trouble finding the location (several others mentioned that it's not easy to find). From downtown, take Sunset west and it will be well marked on your left after Government.
