AMBLER ARBORETUM AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY
Ambler Arboretum at Temple University
The Ambler Arboretum of Temple University is a 187-acre-site that encompasses the Temple University Ambler Campus. The campus has deep horticultural roots - it was initially the site of the Pennsylvania School of Horticulture for Women which opened in 1911. One of the three key focus areas for the Ambler Arboretum is the history of women in horticulture and design, sustainability, and the health benefits of gardens. The gardens are open to the public (dogs are welcome too) and there is much to explore! Highlights include a bell tower, herb garden featuring culinary, dye, and medicinal herbs, ground cover garden, native plant garden, a greenhouse, wetland garden and healing garden complete with a labryinth and rain garden. The wetland garden features sustainable elements including recycled-glass pavers, biological filtration of campus storm water runoff, a solar fountain and native plant communities. The Ambler Arboretum of Temple University is open year round from dawn to dusk. You are welcome to come any time during the day to take self guided tours.
