Small but very nice for a short visit, no admission charge, excellent displays throughout the approximately 10 acres of all varieties of local plants and flowers. Also an education program is run by a scheduled calendar, announced in the local newspaper

It is very easy to pass by without noticing this very nice arboretum on busy Oleander Drive. A truly peaceful place. Well kept gardens are a pleasure to explore, especially the Japanese garden area. Hours could be spent here relaxing and enjoying the beauty.

We first visited during an art and music festival. Great place to walk around on a nice day. Check their calendar and attend during an event to top off your experience.
