This is a great place to go - they offer special events and the gardens are lush and interesting. Watch your children there's water and rocks around but other than getting their clothes wet it's pretty safe.

The azalea in the Spring time is what this park is known for. The park is surrounded by residential blocks. It is not big and it is an odd shape because of the roadways. But, it is very artfully designed and planed well by someone with horticulture background and good taste. In the spring time the place would just come... More

I love Sayen Gardens! When I had a few friends visiting for the summer I took them there. I love the flowers and the gazebos. I did a photo assignment in the garden and received an A.

It's a lovely FREE park which is absolutely gorgeous in May when azaleas are in bloom. It's not a huge place, one or two hours would be enough. Tip: azaleas are usually at their most superb on Mother's Day.

Nice place to walk through. Nice flowers and a pond with very big Koi. Nice place to take pictures. Relaxing and mostly in the shade.

What a find in the middle of hamilton. Really neat to 'get lost' walking around the ponds and the woods. Nice seasonal flowers and fun with the kids.

I was introduced to Sayen House and Garden when my daughter and son in-law choose it as the site for their wedding. The wedding was wonderful, the service and food fantastic, but it is more then that. I've used the grounds for a photo essay of the four seasons. whether a hot day in summer or the snowiest winter day... More

Usually,such tourist attractions are either an arboretum (which I would describe as a shady forest of tall, mature trees) or a formal, sunny botanical garden lined with colorful flowers. Sayen has plenty of both and you can choose whether to visit one or the other or a little bit of both. More benches than I'm accustomed to seeing in such... More

Sayen Gardens, brought to life years ago from a wooded abandoned house in Hamilton Square is a wonderful place to visit for a lovely walk, a family photo or a little picnic in the park. It is beautifully maintained and grows a little each year with the addition of adjoining properties. The original azalea and rhododendrons newly planted perennials and... More

The garden is wonderful with lots of birds chirping and if you visit on a relatively cooler day, you will enjoy your walk in the garden.The admission is free and... More
