Great place to walk. Flat, clear trails. Several different trails of different lengths. Surroundings are beautiful. Mostly out in the open. Very little shaded/wooded areas on the trails. You can bring your dog!

Easy as it gets! Grew up loving this park. Nice visitor center. Simple to find on the way to Newark. Beautiful gardens, trees and lots of birds and bees!

We live 8 miles away from this beautiful place. We visit often and love it. We photograph many areas and find that it doesn’t look the same twice which is always a plus. They’ve expanded the acreage and activities by a lot. We’re always excited to see what each season brings and what we’re able to capture photographically.

Dawes is a beautiful place for any type of outing and large enough you can still feel like you’re getting out of the hustle and bustle and away from the crowd. We go all the time. But it is a little easy if you’re looking for more a hiking, biking experience.

1st time visiting. The kids enjoyed the walk. Dog is 13 years old and did not have any trouble with the trails. Great place for a peaceful walk in nature.

So much beauty in the creation of nature. Dawes Arboretum offers beauty in every season. A friend and I went hiking mid November and there was still a little bit of brilliance in the fall colors.

It is and easy and relaxing place to hike. I walked most of the trails and it was over 4 miles. Its a very picturesque and serene place to go. If you like birding it would be good as well. They have several distinct areas which represent very different types of ecosystems. It was very interesting.

We really enjoyed walking the grounds. Ended up scoping out a lot of items (Almost everything is labeled) that grow well in Ohio to plant at our house.

Firstly this is in Dawes Arboretum off of SR 13 in Newark. Dawes has 4 major sections (Main, Red Barn, Dutch Fork Wetlands, East) , this being in the main section. All of Dawes is wonderful and it's accessible all year round but most enjoyable Spring to Fall. Bring a camera, no matter when you go it's lovely. Staff are very nice, it's free (but a membership if you love it is a great idea). You will want to come back more than once. Check out their night hikes and special events too.

The driving instructions took me to an empty field! Look into googling the park before taking the posted address.

It was really nice lil trail. Leveled ground with no steep hills. Something you could take the whole family to with no worries

I love being at Dawes Arboretum... it is beautiful, the trails are pretty easy; but a great place to just relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors!!! GREAT for a family picnic - I take my son all of the time, since he was 3, and he LOVES it- I cannot even drive in that direction without him getting excited that we may be going there!
