South Arkansas Arboretum


The South Arkansas Arboretum, located in El Dorado, Arkansas, was opened in 1965, and is Arkansas' only state park located within a city.  It's a 13 acre garden which features plants found in the Arkansas West Gulf Coastal plain.  Visitors will enjoy a pretty stream and small waterfall along with all of the flowering plants.  There are about two miles of paved trails and nice places to stop and have a picnic.


The Arboretum is open daily, except for holidays, from dawn to dusk.  Admission is free.

  2. Doesn't El Dorado border Texas? Or am I thinking of Texarkana?

  3. I never would have guessed this garden was in the middle of a city. Before I read that I was thinking how rural it looked.
