Awbury Arboretum

Awbury Arboretum is one of Philly’s finest hidden gems. Tucked away in the Germantown area in Northwest Philadelphia, this location offers wide open spaces and beautiful trails that are perfect for large families with children. The trees are unmatched in beauty in the fall and provide the perfect backdrop for fall mini sessions.
