Took advantage of the kids being in school and a beautiful day to take hike around the Arboretum. After reading the reviews, we opted to take advantage of the quiet and peaceful West side of the park. Trails are well maintained and easy to navigate....More

Visited the Morton Arboretum in June and it was a beautiful day. We enjoyed to Origami Sculptures throughout the grounds. The children's play area was great for our 5 year old grandson. The cafeteria food was very expensive and very poor. You would be better...More

Pick a clear day and spend some time in this beautiful and well cared for park. It's work the price of parking or membership. We took a niece last spring for her graduation photos.

It was a very nicely organized festival with many Asian food trucks, live demos and performances, and activities. I'm glad that I read the advice and agree that it is a bit expensive. A family of 4 (2 kids under 17) was $46. (adults $14,...More

You can drive,bike or walk at the Arboretum. We love to visit often every season. There are fun outdoor activities often and the Children"s Garden is fantastic. Loads for the little ones to do and enjoyable to stroll through for the adults
