Plenty of flowers still blooming. My husband and I loved the Children's Garden - cool place. Just wish the snack bar had been open. But, overall, great scenic beautiful attraction.

My visit is a bit off the peak season for the vegetation of the gardens but it was still well worth the visit. The butterfly room was full of colorful and seemingly playful butterflies that every where I turned was a great photo just waiting to be taken.

Hershey gardens would be a beautiful place for a Wedding. I do however feel that we were there a bit to late in the season to really see it at it's finest. The man made stream/pond were being drained and cleaned for winter to come. The flowers had seen better days but the park is very large and if i... More

I went to the gardens with my mother on a July afternoon. Despite mid/late summer not being any particular flower'a prime season, the gardens had a wide array of vibrant flora. I will HAVE to go back when the roses are in bloom. Groupon frequently has deals for admission that essentially cut the cost in half, so we found this... More

I was skeptical about visiting this garden that I had never heard of before travelling to Hershey for a concert last weekend. It was in between seasons and we were told at the ticket window that the Mums were being planted but there should still be some color. Well, to my pleasant surprise the Mums were already planted and most... More

This was our first visit to the gardens. We really enjoyed walking through and seeing so many different flowers and trees and plants. We loved the butterflies. We will return maybe in the late Spring or early Summer.

This place would have been great if we went on the right timing of when the roses bloomed. All we had for the roses were pretty much leftovers and only couple were decently looking. All other flowers seemed to be blooming but I guess my expectations were a little too high. They had a butterfly farm where you are able... More

Beautiful views everywhere! It was a nice leisurely stroll and the flowers had a nice faint aroma. Butterfly house was wonderful and chock full of all different kinds of butterflies. Loved the wooden xylophone and bell squares in the Children's garden. So whimsical & fun!

I went for a visit to the gardens this past summer. The displays were maintained and the garden taken care of. I love the rose gardens and the seasonal flower displays. I also love the walk. Depending on how often you stop to smell the flowers, it can take a few hours to complete the tour of the entire garden.... More
