The Arboretum was a beautiful setting for a teen’s HS Graduation (and Penn State send off celebration...) Party. The staff was very friendly and helpful in facilitating the needs of everyone, from teenagers to Seniors. I only wish we had the time to explore the Arboretum grounds more, but what we saw was incredibly beautiful.

I’ve been a member of Tyler for over 20 yrs.! But, I just started visiting on a regular basis last summer. I really enjoyed the vegetable garden and seeing all the flowers blooming. Now, I’m enjoying the solace of the trees. It’s a great place to walk and disconnect.

No one could escape pumpkin in the fall, from pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks to pumpkin picking. A couple of months ago, I enjoyed our trip to the Arboretum. We parked at Penn State Brandywine campus for free, then a shuttle picked/ dropped us to and from Tyler Arboretum. We caught a 65-degree day in the middle of October. It was beautiful, peaceful and nicely chilly. Admission was free for members and for non-member adults $11, $7 for children up 15 years; and free for kids under 3 years. We took our water bottles and started hiking. There were about 7 hiking trails (ranges 0.9 miles to 8.5 miles). Trails maps can be picked up from the visitor center at the entrance. Hiking paths were wide, clearly marked and so beautiful. N.B: I went on my first hayride at Tyler Arboretum ( $2.00). It was the least of my favorite of that day. Also, I picked my first pumpkin ever.

Established in 1681, his wonderful collection of woodlands, meadows, gardens, and champion tress is a great place to spend a summer day. Do the Scenic Loop, enjoy the Spring Ponds, and the Butterfly House. In the spring , enjoy the flowering Crab apples, cherries, magnolias, rhododendrons and azaleas. Learn in the Edible Garden and visit the Visitor center and gift shop.
