A place to find goats, butterflies, frogs, turtles, tree houses, and a botanical garden. They have hiking trails for beginners. Well worth a peaceful visit.

First visit was more than expected. Came to see the Insect Sculptures with my granddaughter which we loved. Then we enjoyed the tree houses and goats and the serenity and beauty of the arboretum.

Beautiful, well cared for grounds. Great for a family stroll. Butterfly gardens, tree houses, outdoor sculptures, picnic areas were just a few of the things we saw. Everything was clearly marked and signage explained the significance.
