    Visitors here are at home on romantic strolls or guided tours delving into the life of trees – in either case, the gardens around this former 19th-century summer home are undeniably beautiful.

    It's a hidden gem. I went there in the fall and the view of all the colorful trees was breathtaking. If you are around, you have to visit this place.

    One of the most beautiful places in the city limits! A membership is well worth it. Great place to bring a picnic and book and spend the afternoon!

    In the cold winter months, duck into the charming little Fernery, a period glass greenhouse beloved by Victorians, for a warming glimpse of lush, green growth.

    Did you know? When the Morris family bought the land that is now the Arboretum, it was barren, with poor soil quality and bad drainage. Today there are more than 13,000 plants here! Read more
