  • Nice walk outside with very pleasant atmosphere. All guests were respectful. If you have allergies, take something before you go. 
  • Beautiful flowers, fountain and winding paths. Appropriate for everyone. Romantic and family friendly. A lot of fun. Great place for an event as well. FREE. Easy parking. Definitely worth the trip.

  • Beautiful, peaceful, scenic. Wonderful place for a walk, a day out with kids, pictures, a wedding, or to actually enjoy a garden. Great space right off of campus. Hidden gem.
  • Outstanding venue, and a good place to take a walk and relax, or even exercise. They have a beautiful location for weddings/events. I am looking forward to the expansion of the arboretum for an even richer experience.
  • An under-appreciated gem in State College. The Arboretum is beautifully maintained and free. Many of the flower beds are replanted several times a year so there's always something in bloom. The new children's area is beautifully designed so you're always discovering another hidden fun thing. Well worth visiting, and revisiting.
  • A fountain, a cave, statues, ponds and a beautiful, shaded overlook. I was overwhelmed with the variety and healthy condition of all of the native trees and especially loved all of the artfully arranged flowers. Be sure to check out the kaleidoscope in the children's area!
  • Great place for a walk or just relax and enjoy the view. Better when the weather is nice
