A place for families to hike and explore the gardens and nature. There is a specific part of the gardens just for children, where they can get dirty in the digging pit, explore an oversized nest, and go through the winding maze. The Arboretum has a network of linked trails which are fun to explore with kids. Pick up a trail guide or follow the signs.
