I suppose it's a nice enough park...and the garden railroad is interesting. But the admission fee is way too high. You'd be much better off going to Longwood Gardens if you are interested in botanical gardens.

I attended a wedding this past weekend at the Morris Arboretum and it was a such a beautiful venue even in the rain! We were able to walk out in the tree adventure pathway and admire all of the gorgeous trees and wildlife as well. The room had some really extraordinary photography on the walls as well. We loved being... More

We are members and visit often. The ever changing special exhibits are wonderful. Holiday time is great fun with the railroad. Great place to pack a lunch and picnic.

My first to Morris Arboretum was many years when my photographer for my wedding suggested that we go there to have pictures taken. Excellent choice! The place is just great, relaxing & beautiful. The rose gardens in full bloom is a sight to see & just the grounds are taken care of & beautiful! Around the holidays last December, they... More

The grounds were beautiful! Quick tip, though, they don't have a great cafe, so packing a picnic is highly suggested! You can eat anywhere in the arboretum.

Walked around with a friend. We saw this amazing tree that seemed like it was speaking to us. We stayed with it for quite a while and then I came home with my pictures of it and wrote a story inspired by it.

We took the kids to the Morris Arboretum to go to the tree house and to participate in the scavenger hunt. We thought it was nice. The kids enjoyed the train and the tree house a lot. They also liked the scavenger hunt, although it was a bit difficult for them. I also thought it was bit pricey. It cost... More

While it is a bit small by todays standards 125 years ago it was the only one like it in area, some examples have died off due to improper care and can never be replaced, if you like nature when visiting here , make other plans as wll for the day cause it doesn't take long to go through.

We went here for an evening wedding and wondered around before the ceremony. We thought it was so beautiful that we decided to return the next day to explore more. There are a lot of nooks and crannies with statues and little buildings but the true beauty are the flora - some magnificent trees and gorgeous bushes and flowers and... More

We love Morris Arboretum and became members after our first visit approximately 3 years ago. We have visited many different months over the past few years because the gardens are ever changing depending on the time of year you visit. The rose garden, the garden railway, the fern greenhouse are all favorites in the summer. The fall provides spectacular fall... More
