This is my second year going to Planting Fields Arboretum during the Christmas season and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I highly recommend this place to anyone. It is so quiet and breathtakingly beautiful.

Great Coe house with lots of good paintings, great Gold Coast house. Gardens really nice in the fall. Wish we could have spent more time here but the kids had had enough.

Flowers adorn the park with beauty and wonderful scent. Very peaceful to walk the paths and find rare plants and trees. May sit on lawns to relax or enjoy a meal.

It's advertised as the equal of Longwood Gardens, but not even close. Although well maintained with an attractive greenhouse, the acreage is more suited to quiet walks. The Coe Mansion was dark and not worth the cost of the additional admission. When we visited in...More
