My partner and I happenstance upon the Berkshire Botanical Garden's Harvest Festival, and we were able to see a good portion of what this place had to offer. It's a rather large area, with greenhouse space and a lot of outdoor space. Obviously, I saw the Berkshire Botanical Garden transformed into a popular festival, so that's something to take into...

Great gardens but we unknowingly came while they were setting up for a two day harvest festival! Lots of tents and vendors got in the way of our views, but what we saw makes us want to try again in the future.

Beautiful grounds for those who know their plants and those who do not. Contemporary sculpture placed throughout to increase the urge to go.

There is just a week left to experience the beauty of the Berkshire Botanical Gardens before they close for the season. Late blooming flowers, twinkling wind chimes, rustling aspen leaves and the serenity of a garden pond await you during an autumn visit here. A perfect place to enjoy a quiet morning or afternoon walk this week.

We’d heard ado about the Botanical Garden and were not much more than a mile away at the Norman Rockwell Museum, so we went. It was an easy, self-guided trail (crushed stone) and not much more than a quarter mile in length, with a moderate incline at the end. There were trees and shrubs and waning flowers (mid September), but... More

A lovely garden with many gardens included. Beautiful sights and decoration. Leave yourself at least 2 hours to view it.

If you like visiting gardens - this is a one not to miss. If you have children and want to spend some time with them outdoors - plan on coming here. If you want to spend some time outdoors to engage the body and spirit - this is also a great place to some. Well laid out. Nice variety. We... More

This is a wonderful garden. We were lucky enough to arrive at tour time, but it isn't necessary to have a great experience.

My husband and I were vacationing in the Berkshires last month and made it a point to go to these gardens. A friend had recommended it and it's a member of the Reciprocal Arboretum Program (RAP) which allows free entry into gardens for arboretum members (we're members of our local arboretum). When we arrived an interesting and engaging talk and... More

I have been going to this festival for years and years. It is fun for all ages. This year it is October 11-12. Visiting the gardens at other times of the year is also a pleasure. They have a fairy garden for young children to explore. It is a gardener's delight. BUT if you don't care about gardens, don't go... More
