If you find yourself in the Chestnut Hill section of Philly make a stop here and follow the lovely walks through the garden. Summer and Christmas are special as there is a train that is great for children.

Spent a very enjoyable morning at the arboretum. Lots of informal gardens, sculptures, a fun skywalk, and a large model train layout. Great activity for people of all ages!

The Arboretum is a real family place -- lots of gardens, plants and trees to see, but also a "walk in the sky" construction for kids of all ages. Our friend cannot walk very well so we took a wheelchair (available at the gift shop)...More

There's something about taking a leisurely walk surrounded by woods and trees and flowers and bushes--in other words, surrounded by nature. This is not a place to hurry along. If there was ever a place to stop and smell the roses, this is it!

It's a beautiful place to visit any time of the year. They have very nice collection of different plants, from roses to trees. Very expansive grounds, so it takes a few hours to see and enjoy everything they have to offer. Just a gorgeous place!

Beautiful area for a stroll. Winter or summer, the landscape changes. It is always quiet and serene ther. It is a good place to gather your thoughts or, in the spring, look at the flowers.

The Morris Arboretum is outside the normal visitor destinations for Philadelphia, but if you have the time and desire to sit among trees that were planted for appeal and study, find your way to the Morris Arboretum. Among the acres of trees, shrubs, flowers, and...More

Beautiful venue for a wedding in May as long as it doesn't rain. It was a perfect day and a little walk to where the ceremony was. The couple walked down the grassed aisle and said their vow in front of an urn on stairs....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?
