I had one of my best walks EVER at the Bailey Arboretum. It was nice and quiet, so mom and dad let me walk on the long leash for a while. There was a lawn that I could play in so I got some energy out there, the trails were lots of fun, with lots of different environments to check out. I also loved turtle island!
Magical. Simply magical, and our first time here was at the start of spring before much had bloomed. We were so excited to see an arboretum that welcomed leashed pets! The grounds are gorgeous, the trails are well kept and offer a variety of scenery from woodsy areas to marshland and back again. We walked every trail the first time we were there, some of them twice. We just didn’t want to leave. We saw lots of wildlife and can’t wait to go back when the gardens are in bloom!
Fun Facts & Sights to See:
- Volunteers for Wildlife has their hospital here. You can walk through the aviaries and see some stunning birds that can’t be released back into the wild like owls, hawks and kestrels. Dogs aren’t allowed near the aviaries so we took turns holding Jinx while one of us walked through.
- Historical fact: This is the former estate of Frank Bailey and his wife. The house, which they fondly called Munnysunk, is still here on the property. The trails will take you right past it!
- Sight to See: check out the beautiful stone German Castle that was originally built for Bailey’s daughter.
- Sight to see: Check out the Dawn Redwood trees throughout the property. At one point, they were thought to be extinct!
