  • Right now it's winter, so today was a hiking day at Holden! There is admission here (unless you are a member) but the Arboretum is large and has ample choices for hiking and strolling, so worth the pr...  more »

  • If you’re willing to take a drive and you like a great walk in the woods, check out The Holden Arboretum. Holden Arboretum owns of the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, which is down at University Circle, but Holden is a huge botanical gardens with multiple areas to walk and enjoy nature, whereas the Cleveland Botanical Gardens are inside and outside, and much more compact. There is also a terrific bridge across and around the valley at the Holden Arboretum. They walk across this bridge provides a beautiful view of that valley in the area below. Don’t miss this bridge. There’s also a tower which requires climbing a lot of stops but allows another fantastic view of the Arboretum from above. You can see for miles in any direction. If you’re in Cleveland for a week, or you love gardening, make sure to put Holden at the top of your list.
  • Absolutely LOVED this place. Kids can run free there are areas for them its a great experience for them. For parents well garden ideas! A must go place. I spent hours have to go a couple of times to cover the whole place. Experience for yourself.
  • Excellent place to walk through wooded areas, fields of flowers, around a lake or many other bodies of water. I have went during each season, and each holds something special. Most of the plant life has labels to let you know the species. I highly recommend both this and the Botanical Gardens which is included in the membership.
  • Beautifully landscaped. A great trip for the whole family. Took my daughter (2 at that time) and my 5 year old nephews, they had such a blast. A great trip for all ages. You will need cash too do the observation tower, and canopy walk. But it's worth it, especially with kids!
  • A fantastic place to connect with nature. In a setting so grand and deliberate, the Holden Arboretum sparks the imagination and challenges visitor's to discover its beauty. GO SEE this jewel of a resource!
