Gorgeous grounds with lots of "secret gardens", garden sculptures and even a "tea house", all located 30 minutes outside of New York City in the middle of a beautiful suburban community!

We are members of the Gardens, so we visit a few times annually. They also host excellent community events - the most recent one we attended was a Fall Festival. Great family fun!
