  • What a great place to walk around and see all the gardens that have been created. It was great to see what has been done here. You can spend hours here if you love the outdoors and plant material.  more »
  • Very nice, even in the fall, when most of the flowers have died. Look forward to going again one day in a different season.  more »

  • 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.
  • Incredible area to relax and spend a happy afternoon with plants and open space. Kids loved it!
  • 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.
