"The Arboretum is a wonderful venue, year-round, to host a family reunion. There's always something to see!  The tram accommodates all ages and physical conditions and is a great way to tour and see the highlights of the beautiful grounds and exhibits and the facilities are very accommodating for a private lunch or dinner.  And the food is great!" - Jeannine Rivet
