Constitution Park & Arboretum includes a community center with a game room and recreation room with an adjoining full kitchen. This park features a playground, two tennis courts, and an outdoor basketball court. The Arboretum, our "Tree Zoo," is approximately nine acres of land containing over 200 exotic trees from five continents around the world. These trees are displayed along a half-mile walking path, fully accessible by wheelchair. The types of trees included in the tree zoo are Flowering Tropical Fruit, Exotics, Palms, Wetlands, Bamboo, Natives, and the Butterfly Garden. The tropical rain forest houses two misting waterfalls.
