We are members here and decided on a beautiful April day to visit again. It was disappointing. There were some bulbs in the gardens but everything was still rather bare. The day was hot but the water fountains and regular fountains were still turned off...More

Beautiful landscapes of plants with magnificent gardens. The fernery is my favorite area! There is so much to see and learn we purchased a year membership to explore all year round. Great place for everyone to enjoy.

I live in the area but rarely go here. No good excuse. I went there for a wedding and was reminded of how nice it is. Nice for a walk, take in the beauty, let go of stress.

We are members and enjoy our visits to the Morris Arboretum during every season. We try to go during the week as weekends and special events can get crowded, It's a beautiful treasure to enjoy for any age group.

From the lovely lavender to the big bird's nest to the more simple flowers and fountains, this is a flower lovers haven. TIP: Guys, this would be a beautiful place to propose. The gardens are stunning and the fountains are so romantic. Panoramic view of...More

I'm going to be in the area at the end of February. Is there going to be much to see? Or should I wait more until the spring?
