This is a vast, and beautiful, and very diverse garden and natural area. It would be very hard to see the whole thing on one day. Pick the trails you want to do on your visit. I have been here several times, but most recently was excited to try the new tower and canopy walk. I recommend both. Everything is well done, the trails are well marked and the gardens and wooded areas are breathtaking. You can even see Lake Erie from the tower. Spend a day relaxing in nature. It's very healing.

We hadn’t been to Holden in years and decided to visit while the October weather was still mild. We bought tickets on-line in advance and were treated with a beautiful, warm and sunny day. The grounds are beautifully maintained and many of the Fall flowers were still in bloom. We spent several hours exploring the many gardens and ponds including the tower and canopy walk. In these trying times with bitter politics, divisive public discourse and a deadly pandemic, there is little more reenergizing than a day in the outdoors. The Holden Arboretum makes such a day even more special.

Nice area to walk around with all the trees, plants and ponds. Decorated very nice for Halloween. The canopy walk was nice and the Emergent tower had breathtaking views of the area and you can see Lake Erie. With COVID you do need to purchase your tickets online. The canopy walk and tower only allow a certain number of people on them at one time.

The grounds and trails are lovely and peaceful. This is an excellent way to reconnect with nature not too far from the city. Plan to spend some time. Three hours is about right unless you are going to hike some of the longer trails.

This is a nice arboretum with the added bonus of the canopy walk and the emergent tower. The tower was my favorite. I liked the canopy walk too, but it is pretty short. Make sure to visit the garden behind the visitor center. It was very pretty during our visit. Don't come for the tower or canopy walk on a day where the is lightening. They close for awhile after a rumble.
