Wildflowers, ferns, serene fields and woodlands combine to create a formal garden along Victorian standards. The land was purchased in 1852 by the wealthy Cope family as a summer home; it became an arboretum in 1916. Programs for inner-city children and guided nature walks are also available. Admission to the park is free.
