Arboret near Sandnes
Created about 30 years ago, following a forest fire, the arboretum is becoming more mature and interesting. There are lots of paths - some flat, some steep terrain. The area is mostly accessible with wheelchairs, but no bikes please. For obvious reasons, barbecues are not welcome.

The Arboret covers approx 130
acres of varied landscape including lawns and pools. It is a beautiful area
for all to ramble, especially those with an interest in plants and trees.
There are endless possibilities to extend the walk with several kilometres of paths in the Melshei area.
