McConnell Arboretum & Gardens
In May of 2005, The McConnell Arboretum and Gardens opened, the newest addition to Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The new gardens comprise 20 acres of Mediterranean climate display gardens, a children's garden, a medicinal garden, and two beautiful and unique water features. The new gardens are a showcase within the 200-acre Arboretum, which links to the Sacramento River Trail. The Arboretum is accessible by a system of footpaths and bike paths just north of the Gardens and the Sundial Bridge.
