We had just visited The Morris Museum and wanted to spend some time outside to enjoy the beautiful day. The arboretum was only a few minutes away and we had a very pleasant time walking in the gardens

Firs time visit, won't be the last. Very friendly, helpful staff. Several gardens filled with colorful tulips very nicely laid out. Several walking trails. Also a barn with old historic buggies. Very impressive - am surprised that it was not crowded on a beautiful Saturday.
