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.

    1. I think it's nice they allotted 13 acres in the city for this garden.

  2. I look forward to your garden posts. This looks really nice and within our driving experience. Need to check it out. Thanks and cheers! Hope you are doing great!

  3. I lived there for 5 years but never made it to El Dorado.

    1. Too bad. Maybe someday you'll be in the area again.
