The Cottage Garden is located on the southeast side of the Rose Garden and contains a wide variety of old fashioned roses, perennials, and annuals. Planted in the popular cottage garden style, this overflowing mix of plants is a treat for the senses. Muted pastel colors relax the eye while a variety of roses and perennials entice the nose with captivating scent. Many of the roses in this garden bloom only in early June, but this garden has something to offer the visitor all summer long.
Parking Lot Closed July 27 - 31, 2015. Garden Open.
Morris Arboretum’s parking lot is being repaved the week of July 27, 2015. Our parking lot is a demonstration lot for its sustainability. Installed 25 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 the week of July 27, 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.
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.
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.
