Taylor Arboretum, not to be confused with Tyler Arboretum, is located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. It is located on 30 acres of land along Ridley Creek and is a peaceful setting for visitors to explore nature either by personal walks or by educational opportunities.
This land was part of a thousand acre land grant sold to John Sharpless by William Penn in 1682. In 1914 Joshua and Anne Taylor purchased this 30 acre tract as a retreat from their hectic lives in the city. Anne died in 1930 and John dedicated these grounds to a Memorial Arboretum in her memory.
Many of the plants and trees on this land were planted between 1950 and 1960, from giant dogwoods to native bushes. There are a wide range of animals that live on or near this arboretum, so keep your eyes and ears open when you are walking the trails.
The Arboretum is open daily 9-4 PM. Groups are welcome. Call 610-876-2649 for more information.
