“Small but beautiful gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Sculpture and gardens combined- cute little trails with well identified plantings-also a historic home is on the property- would love to visit in the spring when the 30,000 daffodils are in bloom!

“Still recovering from a few storms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Years ago the Arboretum looked great, but Irene and Sandy took a toll. Still it is very worth a trip to see. The grounds are very nice.

“A Beautiful, unusual spot--Great for Photographers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Reeves-Reed Arboretum, located in central Summit,NJ, is an interesting spot, both from a horticultutral point of view as well as a geologic, because it features a huge bowl that dates back to the Ice Age. In season, the plants are beautiful, particularly the daffodils in the spring, not to be missed. Exhibits indoors, which change, are also compelling. At $5 a voluntary admission fee is certainly reasonable.
