Visited this arboretum after being unable to park anywhere near the rose garden. The arboretum is large, and most of the trees are labelled. There is some wheelcahir accessibility, but it is limited. There is a good variety of trees and shrubs.

Spent a few hours walking around and found it enjoyable and interesting. It was a cold winter's day and there was snow all around but it only added to the enjoyment. Great place to spend a few hours.
