Cox Arboretum Tips (5)

Cox Arboretum

South of Dayton is a beautiful green space, part of the Five Rivers Metropark system, known as the Cox Arboretum. The Cox family donated the land to establish this park in 1962. With a variety of plants, a pond, and over three miles of hiking trails, this is a refreshing change from the city.

great metro park

Love this park .. we have went here for years .. great place to walk around and relax in nature. Theres hiking trails and a butterfly house .. butterflies do best in 80 degree or warmer weather. Lots of flowers, birds, butterflies Nice lakes with large orange or white carpe. There are often ducks and geese but I think they try to discourage that with a working dog that chases them off.
This park is just minutes away from Dayton Mall and restaurants. Great place to bring a picnic or take pictures .. even formal pics for wedding or graduation. Every season is different and has different things to see. Years ago they added these stone slab waterfalls that are a great photo opp. Lots of free parking. Such a lovely peaceful place.

every season has different things to offer but spring is my fav.

spring is great time to visit with camera

spring is a great time to visit and play with your camera and try the macro pic on flowers, bugs, trees that are starting to bud and blossom. lots of people bring their kids and take pics in their Sunday or Easter clothes. This is one of my favorite local parks. Great place to explore .. relax and of course play with the ol' camera. Each season is different and it's free ... parking is easy to find.
