This arboretum is wonderful in that it used to be an elegant estate with numerous planned gardens and outbuildings. There are paved pathways, making it easy to take kids in strollers or older folks with trick knees! We love to go when the train display is running. Many of the trees and plantings are marked with their botanical name. They have a very small gift shop, which is a nice touch. I suggest taking a picnic lunch since there are several places to sit and eat.
