We enjoyed strolling through the gardens. Our stay was a little too early in the season for the blooms, but all the gardens and displays were laid out beautifully and there were some tulips and other early flowers starting. It was very pretty now but must be stunning in another month or so!

I appreciate the historical meaning in this garden. Highly respect Catherine Hershey for starting this garden many years ago. Beautiful setting and great views of Hershey.

Pretty and relaxing as can be for young and old alike. A great inter-generational place to explore. Wonderful specimens and color to see most of the year.

This is a very nice place, with plenty of things growing, just not everything. The grounds, as you'd expect, are very well maintained and comfortable to walk thru. I'm sure there are at least 2 other times of the year when more flowers / bushes are blooming, and for that reason, we will be back. There is something for everyone... More

A nice and conveniently located additional stop, while in Hershey. Often a nice spot to walk around on a sunny day.
