“Take a relaxing walk through the gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The Cornell plantations is an excellent place to get out of the car and take a walk through many different gardens and ponds. It even has a small sculpture garden which was very interesting. Entrance to the gardens is free. There are some pay to park spots but it also has many places to park for free.

“An amazing place to hike and explore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Cornell University grounds are extensive - including many interesting places. Our favorite had to be the Plantations and Arboretum. Incredible species of spices, and flowers that the warm SoCal weather doesn't allow. A great new center and well-marked signs make this an easy place to explore.
