The heat is on! But there are lots of shady spots here at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
Grab a board game at the Front Desk and head out for a few hours of “unplugged” fun. Games include Wildflower Bingo, Bird Concentration and Gardenopoly (a Monopoly spinoff). We also have chess, checkers and backgammon.
Perfect summertime entertainment when you want to rest your body but exercise your mind.
