Last weekend I went to Seattle's Washington Park Arboretum.  The timing was perfect for spring colors, since the azaleas and rhododendrons were in full bloom:

The park turned out to be great for wheelchair travel, as well.  The aptly named "Azalea Way" is a mainly flat trail of hard-packed gravel.  The "Rhododendron Glen" and other areas are reached by hilly trails of either hard-packed gravel or less-maintained dirt.  This combination offers something for people in different chairs, with different goals, and with different abilities.  And there are beautiful plants and trees all year round!  Sound like an ad?  The park looks like an ad!
