Willowood Arboretum, located in Gladstone, New Jersey, is 130 acres of rolling farm land that has about 2100 different kinds of native and exotic plants. In 1908, two brothers, Henry and Robert Tubbs, used an inheritance to purchase a country home. They spent a lot of time developing the grounds. It is New Jersey's most comprehensive and longest continually-operating arboretum. Since 1980, it has been under the management of the Morris County Park Commissioner. Visitors will enjoy formal gardens and a lot of trees. One is a huge Redwood which is now more than 98 feet tall.
The arboretum is open daily from 8:00 AM to dusk. Admission is free.
Before I go, I'd like to let you know that one of my blogger friends, Traci Terry, is having a give-away of my book, Don't Feed the Elephant. If you'd like to enter or read the nice review she gave, please go here.
