Nestled in the estate neighborhood of Radnor ,are the unique gardens within the Chanticleer Estate.Here visitors can wander throughout the well manicured grounds and experience a similar feeling that one would find at Longwood Gardens or Winterthur .Without traveling the 25 miles or so to reach those destinations .

We love Chanticleer. We drive the 2.5 hours from our home to Wayne, PA yearly, usually in May or early June, to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous gardens of Chanticleer (http://www.chanticleergarden.org). What I particularly like about Chanticleer is that on Friday evenings you are permitted to bring a picnic basket to dine wherever you would like througout the gardens (devine!). "Chanticleer...

Chanticleer is an amazing place for strolling beautiful and ever changing gardens; picnicking with friends; getting inspiration for floral arrangements and landscaping; or just the pure escapist fun of plunking down on one of the many chairs dotting the garden and pretending that this is your home. One thing to note is that while children are welcome, their balls and... More

The volunteers here deserve mention too, so enthusiastic and helpful, their recommendatios for specific parts of the garden are well worth listening to.

As a professional horticulturist I have visited many public gardens and arboreta, but I have never walked a garden as lovely as this place. Each outdoor room was a delight--the entire place luring you from one tranquil yet fascinating spot to the next. It both soothes and titillates with its emphasis on foliage and texture and a rich comfort being... More

it was the last day that the garden was open and despite the cold, it was a beautiful place. There are many different parts to the garden and each place was really different and well made- there are sculptures, water features, even a house w/ a beautiful pool as well as the beautiful nature all around. Worth a visit!

Gorgeous property and wonderful park to stroll in as a couple or with a group for a convenient and quiet outing! Provided a great location for a large family gathering (out of towners), to break up the day. Picnicking is available with advance notice.

This once-private residence is a 35 acre estate with beautiful gardens and hidden treasures. Even in this "off" season, the grounds were colorful and beautifully maintained.

The gardens are maintained very very well. Anyone interested in elaborate gardens with a spectacular variety of plants will find this place very nice. Its also good... More

Oh my goodness this place is beautiful. There is so much to look at. Nice place to go for a leisurely stroll. You can bring alcohol in and just sit and chat with friends! Great place to visit!
