    Absolutely beautiful, and an awesome free place to bring kids! They have water play and sand play areas, so be sure to dress accordingly. Lots of morning programs for kids too, like origami and other little crafts. Yoga on Tuesdays, too, which is adorable. One of our favorite places around!

    Beautiful gardens with constantly changing seasonal displays. The Children's Garden is a must see for both kids and kids at heart. Bring extra shoes and pants for creek splashing.

    What a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. We were there during a particularly warm weekend in February. Families strolled through the beautiful gardens and played in the central grassy area. This is a great place to visit if you are in State College!

    The Arbotetum is the perfect place to relax and to study in an outdoor calm environment. It has wifi all around the entire place so that's perfect for using computer. It's always so well maintained and I love everything about this place.
