Awbury Arboretum

Awbury Arboretum is a non-profit 55-acre public landscape and historic house located in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia.  The Arboretum’s grounds are open year round, dawn to dusk, free of charge. Stop by today and enjoy the landscape of rolling hills, ponds, gardens, and peaceful meadows.  Dogs on lead are welcome when no programs are being held.  Awbury offers educational programs, service learning and volunteer opportunities, and hosts Weavers Way Farm and the Awbury Community Garden. It also offers service-learning opportunities for middle, high school, and college students.  LaSalle student service groups have been active in partnering with the Arboretum to lend a hand on landscape maintenance projects, and several groups are currently working with Awbury staff on program planning and development.
