I really enjoyed this garden, particularly the rose garden and the swan lake. It was a manageable size to walk all the paths before getting too tired or bored, and I lucked out with a beautiful Fall day

There are lovely walks here. Not just trees. There are flower gardens, miniature train displays, a log cabin, and so much more.

We used a library pass for the entrance fee and have visited the Arboretum two times. Visiting this Arboretum was good way to spend 3 to 4 relaxing hours.

Visiting the area with some time to kill I looked for somewhere with reciprocal arrangements with our local botanical garden, of which I'm a member. I found Morris and, with the agreement, entry was free. The man at the gate gave me a run down...More

Large and beautiful arboretum; note that, as the name should imply, these are not formal gardens like Longwood. This is a landscape meant to still seem natural and was originally part of a country estate. You can spend several hours walking through the different areas...More

This place is just plain beautiful. We spent around 2 hours just walking around, looking at all the beautiful landscaping and sculptures. You can see all the work that goes into this place keeping it perfect looking.
