HEAD TO LISLE FOR THESE FUN EVENTS
LISLE–Take advantage of the Arboretum's shade-filled spots to sit and enjoy peaceful summer days. Several trails offer well-placed benches or a quiet clearing to observe the sights, smells, and sounds of summer. One of the most serene trails can be found off the main path in the Conifer Collection on the East Side. As you walk the trail you'll encounter cypress, pine, ginkgo, and yew. Head off-trail for a closer look at the trees that interest you.
