Absolutely one of my favorite spots in State College. Always changing yet peaceful, beautiful! The Arboretum has been a wonderful gift to both Penn State and the community.

“Beautiful, but limited”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The facility is rather new so there are not a lot of old tree like you find at many arboretums. But, what is there is very nice and makes for a pleasant visit.
