“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Went here on a perfect spring day and this place was perfect. The walk around is not too hard to do, so almost anyone can do it. Just an fyi, the greenhouse is hot, but was a great spot. The Bluejeanfoodcritic hopes to go back in 2012.

“Absolutely Beautiful!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

The gardens at Morris Arboretum, the official arboretum of the Commonwealth, is a jewel located on the edge of Philadelphia. The scenery is wonderful and well worth a visit. My wife and I enjoyed it so much we had our wedding there.

“This beats the New York Botanical Gardens!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Bought a membership to MA at a charity auction and we've gone a few times over the last 9 months, most recently with friends from Brooklyn. Even in the colder months, MA has some interesting things to offer and we've yet to see the whole facility. The tree house and trains are clearly the highlight for little ones, but the fern grotto and log cabin were entertaining for them as well. A treasure worthy of preserving!

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

My kids love running from the bird's nest to the trains to the stepping stones to the hidden nature paths. It's a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon in nice weather.
