Beautiful blooms

The park is absolutely beautiful when it was in bloom for spring. All the trees, flowers, and bushes were so beautiful. It was amazing to bring our dog for a nice spring walk through the park.

Loved the arboretum

We didn't have time to wander the whole park, but we loved seeing the plants and wildlife in the arboretum!

just ok
Jun 2021
As far as parks go, it was not especially exciting. It was nice, but that's it. Lots of greenery, but we didn't see many flowers except at the conservatory (that we highly recommend). It's quite hilly, so we regretted having our one-gear bikes with us. The Vietnam Memorial was very nice. We had a map of the park, but felt like there were more trails than indicated on the map, so it was a bit of a challenge trying to find the things we were looking for.

Large, quiet park
Jun 2021
This was a nice big park to walk in. Plenty of plants to enjoy. We even saw a tortoise enjoying a stroll on the path in the conservatory. Very quiet and peaceful. We never found the picnic table but enjoyed a picnic on the lawn

Beautiful park.

The park is beautiful, filled with flora and fauna for everyone to enjoy. It is free to the public and is really an asset to our city. The lilac collection is second to none in the whole USA.

A premier example of F. L. Olmsted landscape design. The hills and deep ravines are a wonderland in the heart of the city. Every season is a reason to explore. Be sure to wander through the Lamberton Conservatory to breath in the freshest botanical scents. It offers several different climates, each with silently moving quail, or turtles, or tortoises. Be sure to look for Lucky, the freeloading duck.
