The JFK Arboretum is well worth a visit for a walk. The park is very scenic and there is a lot of space for a long walk. It is family friendly and there is a nice play park for kids.

Very poorly maintained. Cafe was closed. Visitor centre was closed. Really glad we didn't pay any entrance costs as we left within 30 mins

I went for a walk in the arboretum on a weekday morning during the late summer. It was very quiet, with plenty of plants, shrubs, and trees to admire.
