This arboretum is located in northern Everett and is free and open to the public. Start out at American Legion Park and enter the arboretum along a path that parallels the parking area and showcases medium-sized trees that are great for the home garden.

From the arboretum entrance visitors will connect to a series of looping and intersecting paths that go past the different themed areas: a fern garden, a maple grove, a rock garden, and many others. Most of the plants here are cultivated species, but there is a small section of native plants as well.

This is a great destination on its own, but it is close to several parks and can be combined with those to make a longer neighborhood walk. It's an especially nice side trip from the Mill Town Trail.
