  • What an amazing arboretum! Expansive grounds, great species, beautifully cultivated collections, whether you're a plant geek or just enjoy a beautiful walk, this is THE place to go in Northern Nevada for a walk among the trees.

The citizens of Reno bought this Old Ranch and have converted it into a lovely Oasis.
