The Chesapeake Arboretum is a little slice of nature near battlefield blv. The creek raises and lowers depending on the weather, and there are areas that are a straight drop into the creek, so keeping little’s close would be ideal until you reach the natural playground. This hike is all terrain stroller friendly only. A normal stroller would not fair well on this trail.
