Awesome place to get out and explore, hold an event, or just visit any season! It's awesome to walk the gardens in the different seasons, the restrooms are clean, and safe feeling. It is a huge place so plan some time, or multiple visits and you may want to bring some lunch! They have vending machines with several options, and a small gift shop. There is plenty of room for bringing a picnic lunch, and saw at least one charcoal grill by a shelter. The gardens are beautiful, and filled with surprises from the wildlife, to all the trees, and flowers! Plenty of benches to take a rest most shaded, some picture perfect spots to rest and take it all in also. Some of the trails are a little warm in the sun, but also a good choice of shaded trails as well. They are pet friendly but no pets on any structures. We did not try the walk or tower this time but minimal crowds there this spring! The paths are easily walkable, and seemed stroller/wheelchair friendly in most places...obviously excluding the wooded trails, etc. I highly recommend coming to see the Holden Arboretum!
This is my favorite place on earth. Go. Just go. I think I'm finally going to buy a membership in 2023. I live about an hour away but each time I go it's a new adventure, something to see around every corner. I've visited during every season and love it more each time. So many events going on, ample parking, and the absolute best way to spend an entire day. Bring a picnic and enjoy everything Holden has to offer!!
