The Finch Arboretum is a little different from most arboretums I’ve visited in that the landscape is more homogenous, as opposed to being compartmentalized into specific gardens or sub-forests. It is a very nice property, and conducive to some nice strolling amongst the trees. I visited in late October, and the fall colors were gorgeous. I spent about an hour there, but I took dozens of photos. One could make the entire circuit in 30 minutes, but you may want to budget an hour or more if you want to relax and/or take pictures.
A few notes:
(1) Free admission; excellent.
(2) The parking lot is pretty small, and I didn’t check if street parking is allowed. This may be an issue during peak seasons and/or if an event is taking place, not sure.
(3) The entire southern edge of the arboretum abuts I-90, so gear up for a little traffic noise if you’re next to the freeway.
(4) If you’re visiting on a weekday during the school year, you may encounter commotion from a crowd of children on a school field trip.
