Head out to the Morris Arboretum at the University of Pennsylvania for a day of colorful leaves, crisp autumn air, and seasonal activities. At Fall Festival Weekend, a family favorite for this time of year, visitors can make a scarecrow, paint a pumpkin, enjoy apple tastings, and go apple picking. In addition to these activities, a teen group will build a large LEGO® version of Philly’s LOVE sculpture, and kids can take part by helping and answering trivia. Surprise furry guests from the Elmwood Park Zoo will visit on both days as well. Guests can access the festival with general admission, but some activities will cost an extra fee.
The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania is one of the region’s most stunning horticulture areas, with 92 acres of forests, gardens, and sculptures. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the sprawling campus, which also serves as an interdisciplinary resource for science, art, and humanities research at UPenn. The Chestnut Hill arboretum is listed on The National Register of Historic Places.
