It was pretty but not much in bloom except the roses. My 7 year old granddaughter got a little bored so we didn't stay long. I would have like to stay longer and just stroll around the grounds.

This is a very average garden. It is seems to be well used and liked. The gardens need a bit of weeding. There is a nice view at the top of the garden that overlooks hershey park. There is also a huge rose garden, with many different varieties. I would say this is more of a child friendly garden then... More

We had a little extra time while we were here in Hershey, so we thought we'd stop in. Glad we did. Two grown adults had a great time in the butterfly pavilion, who would have guessed. The rest of the grounds were very nice. Thanks to the staff for planting mostly fragrant roses. So many times you go to a... More

While on vacation in Hershey, my 11 year old son and I stopped by Hershey Gardens for a visit. My son was a little reluctant at first, but once inside he really enjoyed himself. The butterfly house is amazing. The children's section is fun and whimsical. The flowers and herbs are beautiful. It is a very peaceful and relaxing environment.... More

Totally different and inviting...reminding you that you should always stop and smell the roses. The childrens' garden is so well done and interactive and the butterfly house is enchanting. I can't wait to see the conservatory being built in the midst of the gardens.

These gardens are just magnificent. The rose garden is so beautiful and such wonderful varieties. The children's garden was set up great for little ones. The butterfly house is a must see for young and old. We will be back again!

I love Hershey Gardens, and even though today's visit was my fourth, I would go back again in a heartbeat...especially once the new conservatory that is in progress is completed!!! My husband & I had our three young children with us today, so we spent a lot of time enjoying the butterfly house and Children's Garden. I had printed the... More
