I was introduced to Sayen House and Garden when my daughter and son in-law choose it as the site for their wedding. The wedding was wonderful, the service and food fantastic, but it is more then that. I've used the grounds for a photo essay of the four seasons. whether a hot day in summer or the snowiest winter day... More

Usually,such tourist attractions are either an arboretum (which I would describe as a shady forest of tall, mature trees) or a formal, sunny botanical garden lined with colorful flowers. Sayen has plenty of both and you can choose whether to visit one or the other or a little bit of both. More benches than I'm accustomed to seeing in such... More

Sayen Gardens, brought to life years ago from a wooded abandoned house in Hamilton Square is a wonderful place to visit for a lovely walk, a family photo or a little picnic in the park. It is beautifully maintained and grows a little each year with the addition of adjoining properties. The original azalea and rhododendrons newly planted perennials and... More

I didn't know that this park/garden existed. A friend mentioned and I visited this beautiful garden in May 2015. The azeleas were in full bloom with Rodo's were just beginning. The garden is wonderful with lots of birds chirping and if you visit on a relatively cooler day, you will enjoy your walk in the garden.The admission is free and... More

In a modest sized park in suburban Hamilton, New Jersey, one finds a splendid collection of Azaleas all in bloom in mid-May (there are Rhododendrons as well, but they bloom later). For these weeks I can think of no greater treat than walking in this garden. The garden is also available for weddings, showers, and the like. The citizens of... More

I was invited to a family affair at the Sayen House, the food was great and the service was impeccable, the staff really cares about the presentation and the quality of service. The gardens are nice to walk around and get that break that is needed when being overwhelmed by family. I really enjoyed the day.

Probably when the trees are in bloom and the flowers appear it is a lot more exciting. Still a nice place to visit.

Sayen Gardens is enjoyable throughout the year if you love quiet nature walks, but we're coming up on that special time of year when the place is ablaze with color. First come the daffodils and tulips. Before long it's the azaleas, lilacs, and flowering trees. And then it's the rhododendron. Bring your kids, your visitors from out of town, your... More

The former house of Fred Sayen who loved flowers, apparently. Many varieties all around the park. The little lake now has an operating fountain with a 'balcony" over the water for taking pictures.
