Great trees. Great trees, except the purple one. Lots of great trees on a wooded college campus. Come to see the trees.

Absolutely beautiful in all seasons. It's a relatively quiet campus, it's an open campus so there are occasionally middle school/high school kids hanging around, as well as photographers taking portraits.

This small but lovely garden is very well done, a good place to see for plant lovers who are in Swarthmore.

The whole college is an Arboretum, all the plants and trees are labeled. Best in Spring, but still gorgeous year round. There's a small parking lot at the observatory.

The campus has been beautiful since I first saw it 1976, but the Arboretum has been steadily improving everything for the last 10 or more years. Plants are labelled - even better, you can buy some of the plants and tools at the college bookstore!...More
