Another gem here in Ringwood. Highly recommend the Christmas tour. It is not long, but worth the trip. In the spring the flowers are just amazing. I had my daughter's communion pictures taken in the gardens. Nice place to ride a bike or take a stroll as well. Do NOT forget your camera!!

Living in the area, we frequent Skylands Manor often. The trails and gardens are unique with many specially-planted areas and seasonal gardens, as well. Be sure to walk behind the manor house and enjoy the magnificent view, as well as the fountains and gardens leading away from the main house. You can also hike to Shepherd Lake from here; also, the duck pond loop which connects to the back gate at Skylands Road (which is closed on weekends in season). You will also notice many beautiful birds and wildlife.

Easy to reach and to walk around in. I have even run a 5k through the park. Very nice views and gorunds. Hiking and mountain biking are very popular here.

Skylands manor is one of the prettiest places. The gardens are beautiful at any time of year. In spring the lilac garden is gorgeous and the scent is just unbelievable. Just wander the grounds and enjoy the views. At Christmas the house is open and decorated beautifully.

Skylands Manor is the center piece in these botanic gardens but the gardens are the jewels. There are guised walks, self guided trails, and even a concert schedule. A beautiful place to visit any season.
