Expansive acreage full of lush plants and trees. Paved roads for bicycling and walking. Stone mansion and other buildings are great to explore. Watch for festivals they hold every once in a while. Very scenic and relaxing.

I have been to the gardens multiple times. I have also taken the tour of the Mansion and the reflecting pools. Take the family and bring a picnic basket. A great way to spend a day.

The main area where the flowers bloom is one of the most beautiful I've found in NJ. It also opens up into a very large open grassy area lined with small trees, with the mountains to one side. Very picturesque. There is a smaller gated...More

This is a must see for nature lovers, and those who like to experience Gods Canvass. There hasn't been one visit where friends haven't had to drag me away at the end of the day. A must see and a joy to behold
