“Always wonderful to go there”

University of Guelph Arboretum
Ranked #4 of 60 things to do in Guelph
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We go there on a regular basis- it is fun for the kids to ride safely their bikes and we also use it to teach them about seasons and plants. Great variety and always maintained in an excellent shape.

We recently moved to Guelph and one of the main reasons we chose our specific location was its proximity to the "Arboretum". Over the fifteen year period that our daughters attended the University of Guelph, my wife and I almost always found time to visit the Arboretum whenever we came to town for a visit.

No matter what season there is always a kaleidoscope of colours and textures to please the senses. We particularly enjoy the Japanese Zen Garden and the English Rose garden. Although expansive, their are benches strategically placed to stop, rest and absorb the sounds and beauty of nature.

For anyone who enjoys a walk in nature, in an easily accessible location, a visit to the Arboretum is sure to please.

The University of Guelph's Arboretum is a lovely location to visit at any time of the year. Its groomed trails are great for walking in the summer or cross country skiing in the winter. Strategically placed signs identify most trees and trails. The Arboretum Centre is used extensively for special events and romantic occasions such as weddings and anniversaries. The University's Food Services always provide outstanding meals when they are required.

During the winter one can sit for hours watching the numerous birds at a number of feeders in various locations. The University of Guelph has provided an excellent free attraction that is widely used and appreciated by faculty, students, and the citizens of Guelph. Given its size and various attractions, it is worth visiting often.

A great place to enjoy plants and trees. Very serene. We went with kids and they were not impressed, unfortunately. The trails were not marked well in some parts of the park, so we couldn't find all the small gardens we came to see.

Many of the flowers had already bloomed by early August so we missed out on the beautiful colors. Our favorite gardens were the Italian and Japanese gardens. Recommend it for a relaxing, leisurely walk.
