School’s out for summer! If you’ve been waiting to get outdoors and have some fun with friends, the Arboretum is the place to be!
You already know The Arboretum is the best location for students who love to work hard and have fun: walkable to campus and tons of businesses, we’re centrally located to nearly anyone you want to see, or anything you want to do! But in case you need some ideas, here are some great ways to have fun this summer at the Arboretum:
Take a walk on the wild side. Did you know the Arboretum is nearby some of Kalamazoo’s favorite nature trails? The Arboretum Trail is a network of paved and natural trails following Arboretum Parkway, just north of our property, traversing our picturesque Arcadia Neighborhood. About a mile down Drake Road is WMU’s renowned Asylum Lake Preserve. Just the right size at around 200 acres, this fenced historic park is a great place to meet other WMU students who live, study, and hang out at nearby Gibbs House and the WMU Engineering Campus at Parkview. For fans of disc golf, Kzoo’s laid-back Knollwood Park is less than a mile west of us, down West Michigan Ave off Greenwood Ave. If you get thirsty throwing those discs around, Knollwood Park is just around the corner from The Den Party Store and your favorite Den Pop!
Get your game on. When the sun’s shining on a warm summer afternoon, it’s the perfect time to meet new friends with some Frisbee or sand volleyball at the Arboretum! When the temperatures start climbing, there’s plenty of fun to have indoors at the Arboretum: meet us at the clubhouse for billiards, air hockey, or a game in the computer lab. You won’t find these facilities at any other apartment complex in Kalamazoo.
Take a dip. If you live in Kalamazoo, chances are you’ve heard of all the fun we have at the Arboretum pool deck (pictured). But did you know that our luxurious pool deck has been awarded by the American Institute of Architects for its smart and sleek design? All of our residents, both current and future, are more than welcome at our legendary pool… Sign your lease today to save your spot! When you make your first trip down to the pool, say hi to us in the Leasing Office! Please leave all glass and any breakable items at home.
Enjoy these and many more opportunities for fun in the sun all summer long at the Arboretum!
