Construction Notice:

Parking Lot Closed Thursday, July 30 - Friday, July 31, 2015. Out on a Limb garden feature will also be closed Thursday, July 30 - Friday, July 31, 2015

Morris Arboretum’s parking lot is being repaved Thursday, July 30 - Friday, July 31, 2015. Our parking lot is a demonstration lot for its sustainability. Installed 25 years ago as one of the first of its kind, the parking lot has filtered into the earth about 31,863,304 gallons of precipitation from the Wissahickon watershed. But the time has come for it to be renewed.

The entire parking lot will be closed Thursday, July 30 - Friday, July 31, 2015. Auxiliary parking will be available at the bottom of the hill (near the kiosk) and shuttle service will be provided to the top of the hill. ADA access will be limited. No buses will be permitted beyond the kiosk.

Our Out on a Limb garden feature will be closed for maintanence on Thursday, July 30 - Friday, July 31, 2015

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are committed to keeping our parking lot sustainable and our visitors safe. Thanks for your patience.

The Arboretum is open as usual. Click here for hours.

Please note that weather conditions can change quickly, check back or call (215) 247-5777 before heading out for a visit.

Weather conditions may limit garden access to certain features even if the garden is open – please check the web site or call (215) 247-5777 for updates before visiting. Our visitors’ safety in the garden is our top priority. Therefore when inclement weather is predicted, we will make decisions about closing the garden accordingly.
