Taylor Memorial Arboretum

The Wallingford Arboretum, located at 10 Ridley Dr, Wallingford, PA 19086, is one of the most well-known and visited historic parks in Pennsylvania. The arboretum is a part of the nearby Starkey Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, and opened its doors to the public as a public park in 1887. It’s also home to some beautiful gardens, including one called “The Garden” that was built by Henry B. Moseley III, who designed all five ponds at Prince William Forest—which the arboretum is a part of—and later donated them to this park. The Wallingford Arboretum was first opened to the public as an arboretum and botanical garden in 1894 with over two acres of greenery. Today, it’s home to approximately 9 acres of green space and more than 150 different trees native to North America. Many people come by the Wallingford Arboretum for their tour or their picnic on one of its many lawns. Here are 4 reasons why you should visit this historic spot in Pennsylvania if your looking for something special:

Wallingford Arboretum is located in the City of Winchester near the eastern border of Montgomery County. In addition to being a part of the University of Pittsburgh, the park is also home to five interconnected ponds, one serene lake and several gardens. One of the most popular recreational activities at the park is boating on the five ponds, which offer an ideal setting for fishing, canoeing, paddle boarding, stand-up paddle boarding and other water sports. There are also several picnic areas, gardens and a playground at the park.

The Wallingford Arboretum’s “Garden” is a 1,500-square-foot work of art made by landscape architect Henry B. Moseley III. The garden originally opened to the public in 1914 as “The Gardens,” and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1962. The gardens are filled with rows of beautiful flowers and shrubs, including more than 50 species of flowers native to North America. The gardens are also home to a large pond, “The Pond,” which offers many different activities for water sports enthusiasts, including jet-skis, canoes, kayaks and rowboats.

The walls of the arboretum are lined with hundreds of trees native to North America, including white and national park cottonwood trees, American elm, American magnolia and American tulip tree. The trees can be found in various stages of growth, including a number that have been planted. There is also a large oaks section in the park, which is a living, breathing entity with its own set of problems and solutions.

Wallingford was once part of a much larger estate that served as a summer resort for the wealthy elite in the 19th century. The estate, which was once called Wallingford Abbey and was later known as Wallingford House, was purchased in 1875 by Charles T. Riggs and later donated to the city of Pittsburgh. The city then officially designated the property as a national historic landmark in 1967. The park contains the original house, which serves as the visitor center, as well as the barn, greenhouse and outbuildings. In addition to its beauty and history, the landscaping and architecture of the Wallingford Arboretum are thoroughly preserved. Visiting the park is a wonderful way to experience the history and beauty of this property.

3,000 people is a big crowd for a park, but that’s exactly what the Wallingford Arboretum attracts each year. The park is home to some of the most beautiful gardens in the country, and the gardens are beautiful year-round. You can visit the “Garden,” the “Outdoor Gatherings” and the “Outdoor Amphitheater,” which is located by the lake. There are also many guided tours throughout the year that explore the gardens and other areas of the park. If you’re looking for a place to relax and unwind, the Wallingford Arboretum is the park for you.
