At this time, Bartlett Arboretum was open Monday - Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Entry was free but special events required the purchase of tickets. There was plenty of parking. There were a lot of hiking trails, but the two RV Gypsies were only interested in the flowers. Although there are 12 gardens, not many flowers were in bloom on this date. However, the two RV Gypsies did find some interesting, unusual flowers. The man in the welcome office was not very friendly. It was a super hot day.

The Sensory Garden is devoted to plants that emphasize the five senses: smell, sight, hearing, taste and touch. Each raised bed in the garden had a different group of plants.
