  • We chose Tyler Arboretum for our upcoming spring wedding and we could not be more excited! The number one reason we booked Tyler was because of the beautiful grounds and barn. We've even gone back to Tyler on our own since booking just to enjoy the trails. A very close second reason we chose Tyler was because of the exclusive caterer at this venue, Jeffrey A. Miller. At other venues, I quickly became overwhelmed thinking about having to choose a caterer, rentals, and coordinating everything myself. Not to mention that the costs quickly started adding up! JAM is so inclusive with their services that you could truly stick to their lowest tier package and have a wonderful wedding. At Tyler, JAM does only 1 wedding per day and it will take place after hours leaving you with all 600+ acres for your private event (golf cart included to make the most of your time!). I don't think it gets any better than that! JAM at Tyler has made the planning process as stress free as possible at a surprisingly affordable cost for everything they do. Highly recommend for any event or even to just spend a day enjoying nature!
  • Serene trails, birds, wildlife, great plants and trees , especially in spring. The inner park has tree houses and cute displays great for the kids
  • My family had lots of fun here. The staff was friendly and the park was beautiful! We were so glad to know the bathrooms were heated and clean!
  • I can visit Tyler any time of the year and have a fascinating hike. So much to see if you look attentively and actively. See the big landscape and the small details.
  • An OK botanical garden. Good for a short nature walk. Not much for kids
