Spent a hot humid Philadelphia Wednesday at the lovely Chanticleer gardens. Welcoming staff; few cautionary signs. About one mile rambling trails. Shady areas comfortable. Rest rooms awesome. The lotus flowers blooming are a highlight! Closed mon/tues.

Great place. Highly recommend it. So many unique features such as rock book and stone chair and sofa. Handrails all unique looking like tree branches. We hit the perfect time for the Lotus blooms.

We were in the area for a couple of days and I found this garden on Tripadvisor. We had visited Longwood Gardens in the past, but this has a distinctly different feel. There are guided tours on the weekends, but self guided tours during the week. Admission was 10 bucks per adult. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and stress foliage/trees... More

Wonder for hours in this magical garden. Pack a lunch and picnic , just curl up with a good book or even write one. Little hiding spots to sit quietly and relax or chat . Children and adults imagination can run wild on the little hidden paths. Check website for photography restrictions. Special days set up for artist to paint.

First, it is really inexpensive to get in and what a wonderful set of experiences when you peruse the various gardens. There is a Japanse garden, woodlands, ponds, English scottage... More

Chanticleer bills itself as a "pleasure garden" and it is that indeed. I live near this beautiful attraction and I make a point of going often because it is ever evolving, ever changing for the better. Today I went for the first time this year and was absolutely delighted with some of the new additions. New to me were the... More

Chanticleer is a beautiful garden in the heart of Radnor Township. Just walking the grounds will bring you a peaceful feeling not to mention the colors and variety of plantings to delight the senses.

Chanticleer is full of surprises, ever changing and evolving. Each gardener is given artistic license over his or her garden area and thereby allowing for unique arrangements of color, texture form and shape. Chanticleer is the first place I bring guests who come to visit, as well as a place I enjoy solitude. A true Pennsylvania treasure! Children will enjoy... More
