The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania is a historic public garden and educational institution that aims to promote and inspire an understanding of the relationship between plants and people. Spanning 92 acres, the beautifully maintained gardens are home to over 12,000 labeled plants, trees and flowers across a range of collections, including an azalea meadow, an English park, a holly slope, a Japanese Garden and a stunning sculpture garden.
The Arboretum also boasts a variety of exhibits, collections, and educational programs to enjoy: see the forest from a 50-foot high canopy walk through the treetops on the interactive Tree Adventure exhibit, or delight in the Garden Railway, which features a quarter mile of looping, winding and tunneled model railroad tracks, complete with cable cars, bridges and model trains.
