The grounds are open to the public from dawn to dusk. Pets on a leash are always welcome, but we ask that pet owners come prepared to clean up after their visit. To maintain the integrity of the grounds, we do not allow picnics or the placing of chairs/hammocks. The arboretum is maintained to the highest of standards and your help in maintaining its cleanliness is greatly appreciated.
