The greater Philadelphia area is rich with beautiful parks and nature preserves such as Longwood Gardens, Winterthur and the Fairmount Park system, perfect for those days when you just want to get away from the city life. Not as well known but equally beautiful is the Tyler Arboretum, located in nearby Media, Pennsylvania.
Tyler Arboretum is a wonderful place to relax and spend the day hiking, resting, or enjoying a picnic lunch. This quiet place away from it all is perfect for nature lovers, kids and families, or anyone who just wants to learn more about the natural world around us.
If you haven't been there before, let me share some of my photographs, a little history on the arboretum, and practical information for planning your visit.
