Renovations began in January on the George D. Widener Education & Visitor Center. The project includes the expansion of the building’s main entrance, and the installation of automatic front doors that will comply with ADA standards for accessible design. The entrance will also be more stroller friendly, making it easier for families to navigate the building.
Visitor Center Plaza
In addition to the improvements being made to the building itself, the surrounding plaza will also be enlarged and enhanced.A new 30x30 area will provide a larger gathering space for tours, and will help reduce congestion on high visitation days. The larger terrace will also feature sitting walls and benches toprovide additional seating.
The membership kiosk will be relocated within the plaza and will be expanded to enable staff to welcome visitors more efficiently. New plantings will be added. When finished, the area will provide a pleasant, relaxing space for visitors to gather and linger.
Closure and Visitor Access
The Shop at Morris Arboretum will remain closed until construction is completed toward the end of March. Visitors and those enrolled in classes may encounter inconveniences which we apologize for in advance. The Visitor Center remains open for programs (like classes) and conveniences. Look for signage indicating an alternative entrance.
Morris Arboretum wishes to thank longtime Arboretum friend, Edith Dixon for making these enhancements possible. This attractive new area will allow the Arboretum to accommodate a broader audience and its improved functioning will enhance the experience of every visitor.
Parking Lot Closed September 21, 22 and 23.
Morris Arboretum’s parking lot is being repaved September 21, 22 and 23. 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 September 21, 22 and 23. 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.
