Beautiful Gardens

The gardens were lovely and smelled wonderful! Very interactive with the children. We went a very hot day but, enjoyed it so much! Benches to sit and relax! Would go again!

Spent the afternoon here with my daughter and husband. It's a beautiful location and the flowers and plants are stunning. So much to see and it's great to be able to walk around and enjoy everything that they've done there. We'll be back.

The butterfly house & the children's garden are very nice. Beautifully kept. Gorgeous flowers and trees. Don't rush when you come here. Enjoy your stroll as you take time to smell the flowers. Beautiful gift shop, too.

It is a great garden to walk thru. Children's garden and butterfly house are very educational. Love the many roses that were Katherine Hershey's love. Close parking.

We enjoyed walking around the gardens. It is right on the grounds of the Hotel Hershey. There are so many beautiful plants. We enjoyed the butterfly room. The children enjoyed it as well.

Stop by for a stroll in nature. In winter there are decorated trees. It is very peaceful year 'round.

The gardens are definitely worth the visit. Areas are divided into different themes, with a large seasonal area used for tulips, annuals, etc.. If you are a rose lover, this is the place to go.

I love to come here and experiment with my photography. The quiet atmosphere and fresh air is so calming. The walks are wonderfully colored with all the plants and vegetation.

The Hershey Gardens are a gem among the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions of Hershey. We found that our children (3 years old) enjoyed the gardens more than any other attractions, because they enjoyed the chance to run around and engage in creative play. The Children's garden is wonderful with all the unique ways for children to explore. But,... More

I did not dislike anything about the gardens! Can not wait to go back. So much to do and so little time. I would like to see the Capital some day (maybe next trip).
