This is a great little oasis from urban life. If you stray from the concrete sidewalks and into the heavily-wooded trails with woodchip paths, you may as well be walking in the Maine woods. The diversity of the flora is very impressive; my old girlfriend found some wild plums growing in one section--right before we spotted a young doe grazing in some high foliage. It really can be a magical place.
The Arboretum is not without its educational merits, too. If you're planning the landscaping of your yard or acreage, this is the place to see for yourself how "the right tree in the right place" can impact your property. There is even a nod to history as you ascend the zigzag path to the highest point in the park: each curve has a tree cloned from a famous ancestor, including contributions from the estates of Mark Twain and the orchards of Johnny Appleseed.
