The Arboretum has something for just about everyone. There are greenhouses with tropical plants, outside gardens, a large rolling estate to amble around. There are guided tours of the mansion. And of course, there is a wooded area with many trails to explore. Maps available at entrance (maybe not during winter season) are pretty good.

Very buggy. Wear and bring bug spray. Other than that absolutely beautiful.

Really liked the greenhouse and plenty of picture opportunities. Beautiful area, very peaceful. Easy trail to walk.

Beautiful park/arboretum. Fee to park but worth it. Lovely grounds and gardens. Manor house- Coe Hall has tours. Definitely recommend coming here at least once! Hurrincane Sandy did a lot of damage to most parks on LI, so I imagine the arboretum lost some big old trees.

Many trails. Miles of them. Trails can go from paved & manicured to open fields & thick woods. Some of the most diverse vegetation you'll find anywhere. A bird sanctuary. Beautiful greenhouses with many specimens of tropical vegetation. A mansion with guided tours. You can spend a whole day there.
