Amazing Daffodils
abr. de 2021
This was a pretty 13.5 acre Arboretum which turned out to be a really nice oasis to spend a few afternoon hours exploring and appreciating the beauty of nature. We came here specifically to view the thousands of Daffodils in the “Daffodil Bowl” -- an area perfectly suited for viewing thousands of those gorgeous spring flowers from several angles. So many of them in one place just took our breath away. And being ardent fans of William Wordworth, it was our little piece of heaven to be blown away taking pictures of us “tossing our heads in sprightly dance”.

The Greenhouse was closed on the day that we visited, but we are not that far away, and will plan to visit again this fall. However, on this particular sunny day, tons of other flowers were in bloom and walking around the meandering paths, wooded trails, natural beauty, and the well-maintained gardens was indeed very enjoyable for our family of four adults.

We particularly liked the fact that the place was not overly crowded even though it was a Sunday, and our fellow nature lovers were extremely polite, and diligent about social distancing and wearing masks.

Absolutely worth a visit.

More than meets the eye
ago. de 2020
Reed-Reeves Arboretum is a former country estate. The former estate encompasses prominent late 19th and early 20th century landscape architecture. Much of the landscape design can be attributed to Calvert Vaux who partnered with Fredrick Law Olmstead in it's design.

Before visiting I suggest downloading the online map which show the layout of the gardens and hiking trails. Admission is free but a $5 donation would be appreciated. Note that all the Reed-Reeves Arboretum buildings are closed with the exception of the Wisner House Gallery which is open on the weekends. The arboretum opens at 7 am and closes at 7 pm. As you approach the entrance gate pull-up until the sensor is activated and opens the gate up.

Some of the gardens and trails are handicapped friendly but not all. There are some ramps, and paved paths. Accessible public restrooms are located in the Wisner House on the weekends, The Stackhouse Educational Center restrooms are closed to the general public. Service dogs are permitted in the arboretum.

You can take a self-guided tour, a free guided tour on Saturdays (10:30-1:30) or a Historic Group tour.

Art exhibits are featured in the Wisner House Gallery. April features the daffodil bowl display. June-October features art in the garden with various sculptures. There are historical exhibits in the Garden Library Lounge.

Social distancing is advised , masks and other COVID-19 precautions are suggested and from what I seen, followed.

Here's something else in Summit
sep. de 2020
Nice weather? Consider a nature walk through this free, non-profit arboretum. Well-maintained paths guide you through garden landscapes around a historic house with all kinds of trees, shrubs, flowers, and herbs. Get some ideas for your own garden. Take some pictures. Staff is friendly. There's an art gallery. There are activities for kids. You can get a guided tour. Some places were closed either due to Covid, or seasonal scheduling. So check info for hours, monthly scheduled events, etc. There is some parking.

Winter at Reeves-Reed Arboretum
feb. de 2020
It was cold on the day I arrived, but I stopped into the Visitor Center and picked up a map of the property and looked at some displays of potted plants and used the touch screens to see what this place offered. Then I walked over to the Wisner House. Because it was a weekend, the house wasn't open, but I did peek into the windows and saw the temporary artwork on display. I also looked at subtropical, tropical, and desert plants in the greenhouse.

Amazing trees, beautiful grounds
oct. de 2019 • Pareja
Spent maybe an hour max walking through the gardens and woodland trails on a Fall day. Came across goats eating, and we were impressed mostly by the huge tulip tree and black oak, and maple trees.

Hundred dollar beer
sep. de 2019
My wife and I live in Summit and saw the signs for the 'Oktoberfest' for Sunday September 30th. I had been to the arboretum years back with my kids and remember walking around the hilly grounds, looking at plants, maybe there was a deer or two? It's a pretty property with plants and shrubs and trees. There's no onsite parking although it's possible to park on Hobart and walk. So I returned, expecting to walk around the grounds, point at plants, maybe take a picture or two. The first clue I had that something was amiss was this: where were all the cars? and the people? It looked empty for their Oktoberfest celebration. So we walk in and the man at the booth says "$100 entrance fee". Seriously? I thought he had been joking. What would we get for our $100 fee? Unlimited beer, a bratwurst hot dog, and a pretzel, and shall we say 'ambling privileges' (walking around the hilly grounds and take a photo or two). $100? Seriously? I can buy beer for $1 at the A&P, and guess what -- I have plants in my backyard that I can take photos of. I can only drink one beer at the most anyway. So we left, laughing and wondering: so what's with the Arboretum?

Spring Blooms
may. de 2019 • Solitario
Beautiful arboretum. There is a gate at the front entrance that automatically opens as you approach the gate, then closes once you're in. The grounds are fabulous. There are a number of trails to walk - some are paved, others natural, several different flower beds with a variety of flowers, and tables for a picnic. The staff is friendly. The house was open and had a display of closeup photos of flowers on display.

A beautiful walk - spring blooms yet to come
mar. de 2019 • Familia
A lovely place to spend the day. The spring blooms are yet to come, so would recommend waiting till mid of April to see the garden blooming with flowers and leaves. A very peaceful, serene place - not too large, but have a variety of plants to explore. The kids craft activities at the educational center are interesting.

The place in Summit to enjoy the beauty of nature
oct. de 2018 • Amigos
Reeves-Reed Arboretum has been THE peaceful and beautiful place to go to relax, enjoy the flowers and nature (deer love it too) in Summit. It has been a highlight in Summit for many years. A part of the beauty is how it changes from season to season, always giving a variety of wonderful views.
