  • Re: Arboretum Parking Charge
    It is nice to know that communing with nature will cost you $1/hour ($5 daily max). While mellowing out in the glade, you can stress out about how your meter is running. That being said, I can zonk out on my couch for free. No time limit.

  • Given the choice between being in the vicinity of Wolf Brand Chili’s aftereffects while zokning out on his couch and paying a dollar an hour to park at the Arboretum, the answer is obvious.

  • TimP,

    I am sure Shoup had a section about this in his book “The high costs of free parking”

  • As an Arboretum member, I’d be happy to add another $5 to my membership fee if it would make parking free. The grounds are beautiful and restorative and should be available to all, regardless of the ability to pay.
