Butler Arboretum is located in The Wildwood Park for the Arts, and it is ten-acres of beautiful garden. It has a trail that is paved and that features natural woodlands. There is also a firm grass entry when no recent rainfall has occurred. The trail has a Gazebo at the end, but it is sadly not accessible for wheelchairs. The bathrooms have a door on the outside to get in from, but you can also find the entrance inside of the WildWood building. You can also find the water fountains inside of the building close to the bathrooms. There are no picnic tables close or on the Butler Arboretum trail.
To get to WildWood from Little Rock, head north on State Capital towards Capital Mall. Take I-630 W, take Chenal Pkwy and Kanis Rd to Denny Rd. Wildwood is located close to Chenal Elementary. Once in Wildwood, you can find the Butler Arboretum trail right next to the swan lake. You will have to pass a grassy field first, then take a right once you are back on paved road.
