If you are not a member the staff is super rude! Not all of us can afford the membership. If you ignore the rude staff food is over priced but decent. Everything is beautiful. I enjoy going here with loved ones and exploring the plants and history. Good place just don't be hurt when the staff is rude. Because you've been warned. Overlook the rude staff and you will find a beautiful place to enjoy.

Wonderful variety of gardens. Clearly marked vegetation. Handicap accessible trails. Loved the new area featuring bees. Cozy yet spacious eating area with a small but tasty assortment of sandwiches, soups and salads. Moderately priced. Come for the day and don't forget your walking shoes and a camera.

The landscape arboretum is a great place any time of the year. They try to always have something to do and look at. If you have not done the maple syrup pancake breakfast they do I recommend it. Lots of fun for kids and it cool to see how they get the sap.

We have loved visiting thr arboretum in all seasons. The summer is especially lovely when we can make short trips with out kids and give them time to play and explore. Having a membership has been helpful for this because we can stay as long or a short as we can. The art is lovely and the paths are well maintained. There are regular activities and there is also a play area just for kids.

Phenomenal. One of the most beautiful parks in the metro. There is a fee to enter. They do weddings and have fun events throughout the year. I go to their plant sale in the spring. Cool selection of varieties that are not available anywhere else. And decent prices. I leave with a car full of unique plants for Under 200.
