A great place to see and learn how to garden and appreciate agriculture. There is a chapel there where wedding ceremonies took place. The grounds are a great place to kick back and enjoy the scenery.

Lovely place to walk around espically in the summer when all is blooming. They also have a gourmet market that sets up during the summer right off ryders lane and all of the food is delicious!

I love walking in Rutgers Gardens most months of the year. Lots of trails that are well marked and maintained, and many different types of flowers and plants that I enjoy throughout the year.

This place is super pet friendly and it doesn't take long to walk through the different trails. The best part is the woods right by the water.

If you like to learn or you think you might appreciate a lovely, interesting place to contemplate, you should explore Rutgers Gardens. There are many acres to explore but if you stay near the paved areas or the paths carved out for exploration, there will be plenty to see.

This is a huge Botanical Garden where there is lots to do – walk through the Bamboo Forest, hike on the wooded trails where you will see lots of wildlife, admire the amazing collection of flowers and the Magnolia Trees, photograph yourself posing on the LARGE green Adirondack chairs, sit under the gazebos, or on the greens reading a book,...
