I am a member of the Arboretum and like to visit frequently. The grounds are maintained to the highest level and the place is never too crowded. In season, the gardens are spectacular.

There is always something blooming somewhere on the extensive grounds. A great place to walk and connect with nature, either by yourself or with others. Don't miss the indoor fernery.

This is a large garden within the Philadelphia city limits. It has some beautiful old trees and some interesting sculptures but other than that I did not find the place very interesting. I visited in mid-September so I didn't expect to find many flowers in...More

By gimmicks, I mean non-plant attractions that might interest both adults and children! For example, a huge, up on stilts impression of a bird's nest, with catwalks and walk-on netting to serve as a bird-watching location. I also liked the outdoor train set, although it...More
