This is a beautiful place to spend the day, or many. There is so much to see and learn. Stunning during every season.
The Gold Coast era ended a long time ago, but this Gold Coast estate is now a lovely state park, open to everyone to enjoy. Stroll the grounds, smell the flowers, hike in the woods, picnic on the grass. There is so much to see and do, winter, spring, summer and fall. I started coming here more than 30 years... More
My husband is a gardening aficionado and I love restorations, so this was perfect for us. The arboretum is spectacular, with unique specimen trees, lovely flower beds, an herb garden and a greenhouse. The mansion, Coe Hall, is almost pure English country manor, not surprisingly, since the owner was a Brit. His wife's day room, however, is in the French... More
Before landscaping my year, visited Planting Fields to look at my different options. Went late in an afternoon and there were many wedding parties there. Despite this, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

What a wonderful arboretum! Small enough to maneuver and see a real variety of plants and other flora, yet big enough to maintain a variety. Easy to get to, nice trails, nice (and cool) tourist center.
So we were in the area of the Park and I of course looked it on TripAdvisor things to do in Oyster Bay. Since Arboretum had some nice reviews we decided to stop by. The place is well kept, gorgeous grounds and all around beautiful. You can bring small pick nick and sit on the grass or bring loan chairs.... More
We came to the Planting Fields on a summer day that was the perfect temperature for having a picnic and walking around the grounds. Parking cost $8, which is definitely worth it.

Such a beautiful place. Acres and acres of exotic trees and plants, both outside and in green houses. The grounds are meticulously kept. Expect to do a lot of walking. $8 for parking is the only fee you'll pay to get in. There is no picnicking allowed on the grounds.
This is quite an enjoyable trip to visit this place. The flowers are beautiful throughout the grounds and a tour of the home adds to the enjoyment.
