“Really Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

This garden is not huge (much smaller than Longwood), but really beautiful! You can easily spend 1.5 - 2 hours here. Great opportunity for some fantastic pictures so bring your best camera. Also, google search a coupon for this place. I was able to find one for $2 each person so it was only $8 for adult admission.

“Nice gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

It was December, we did not expect much due to the cold, but they set it up nicely. Looked great, and we enjoyed touring the garden.

“Flower lovers and gardeners will love this self tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Admission is only $10 or $9 for seniors. What a value!

They have a nice gift shop, grab and go shack, butterfly house, water feature for kids, a large rosé garden and every other specialty garden.

What we loved were the quit areas with seating to just sit and contemplate, talk or rest. They are all shaded too which was wonderful sine the day we visited was 100 and 75% humidity!

Parking is adjacent and adequate.

I will highly recommend this if attraction when in Hershey, PA.

“Beautiful Roses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

The only thing my children (14 and 11 1/2 girls) did not like was the day we picked to go was very hot. We took a lot of beautiful pictures and they loved the Butterfly Garden. It is definitely worth checking out!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Beautiful gardens. Many different types of gardens(rose, Japanese, rock, annuals, trees and a children's garden. loved the butterfly house. The lady working in that spot was so informative. It was very hot the day we were there but there were many shaded spots and benches. Great views of Hershey. Enjoyed the visit and took lots of pictures. Take advantage of the free umbrellas they offer for shade.
