Nice arboretum to spend a sunny afternoon. There's a fee, which I'm unaccustomed to (museums/arboretums free in most states I've lived in) or I'd visit more frequently, since I live nearby. Pro tip: Glenside library should have a free pass you can borrow, but you...More

Even after a large amount of blooms were gone and leave came down there was still so much beauty to see. Not crowded. Very romantic and a lot of ground to cover. Worth the money and another visit.

I am a member of the Arboretum and like to visit frequently. The grounds are maintained to the highest level and the place is never too crowded. In season, the gardens are spectacular.

There is always something blooming somewhere on the extensive grounds. A great place to walk and connect with nature, either by yourself or with others. Don't miss the indoor fernery.

This is one of the gems of the Philadelphia area, an expansive arboretum in Chestnut Hill built by a wealthy steel family in the early 1900's. The setting is wonderful and interesting- rolling hills and very naturally placed specimen trees, many of great age. Also...More

Some places make you feel like Heaven really is among us every day. The beauty of the grounds at Morris are mostly understated, but some of the newer features and the traveling/short term exposition items are worth it - just go!

If I recall correctly, the big treehouse with the nets is not entirely accessible. In general, though, it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
