Hilltop Arboretum Reviews & Ratings
We visited for Plantfest! And will be back. The grounds were wonderful. Peaceful, beautiful, well maintained. We enjoyed our time there very much.
This space is a garden on Highland Rd, serving the Baton rouge community by offering a collection of plants established since the mid 20th century. The current status(August 2019) has an established ravine and pond, with the wildflower meadow in early stages of establishment. A definite destination for anyone that enjoys the outdoors.
Top Notch facility, great staff and can also buy Louisiana native plants. Must attend Spring and Fall Plant sales for amazing selection and talk to the experts.
Beautiful place. Lots of paths, and it's free. They also sell plants. We had a day - long retreat there yesterday. The staff and room were awesome. I highly recommend it, especially if you need to relax and de-stress.
Hidden Gem of Baton Rouge! A must see place. All volunteer people who enjoy gardening and nature.
