Please note, visitors are not allowed to climb or sit on the limbs of trees. The Arboretum is home to a number of champion trees, some of which are very old. With 130,000 visitors annually, climbing becomes a safety issue for both children and the trees. We don’t want any visitors or trees to break a limb. Thank you!
We ask that you be respectful of the garden, including:
The Arboretum property includes some hilly terrain. There is an ADA-approved paved walking path with less than 5% grade and benches strategically situated throughout the garden, but walking the Arboretum could prove challenging to those not in good health. We have two wheelchairs to lend out on a first-come, first-served basis, but we recommend you bring whatever accommodations are needed for the infirm and small children. The majority of the garden, including the Out on a Limb exhibit, is accessible from the paved pathways. We have wheelchair accessible restrooms in the Visitor Center. The seasonal dining facilities are also wheelchair accessible.
Guided golf cart tours for people with physical disabilities are offered with limited availability, and must be scheduled in advance. Although we will try to honor every request, two weeks notice is recommended. Please call 215.247.5777 X157 to make reservations.
In our efforts to provide an accessible and barrier-free visitor experience, we welcome your suggestions and observations. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

For the safety of our visitors and to preserve the structural integrity of our tree collection, climbing or sitting on the limbs of trees is not permitted. Thank you!
The lower portion of the Rose Garden will be closed due to renovations to the turf after a long, hot, dry summer with record attendance. The top gate will be open to allow for visual access, just not foot traffic. While we will hope to reopen quickly, some variables are unpredictable. We look forward to welcoming visitors back on our newly restored Rose Garden turf soon.
