Nichols Arboretum is a very lovely park right next to the U of M medical campus. Parking may be potentially a little tricky, but we were here on a weekend so there were a few more options. The great thing is that admission is free! This would be a great place for families, dog-walkers, or really anyone who loves spending a little time in nature.

Members of Matthaei-Nichols park for free at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. All others pay the $1.80 per hour fee.
