  • This place is expansive and beautiful! Perfect for a date or a picnic and it's 100% free to peruse. Beware that it closes at sundown, and the attendant will come looking for you if you linger! On Saturdays in the spring, they even have a farmers market with fresh meats and fruits and vegetables. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Awesome little place , beautiful gardens of flowers , very nicely created paths and arrangements. Great place for a leisurely stroll and it's totally FREE!! which is all the more incredible considering it's Rutgers 🙈😝
  • Enjoyed my first time here during a nature walk. Very well maintained. Many attractions. Suggest comfortable shoes, pants, and long sleeve shirt. 9.9/10
  • Great place to see the nature, perfect for a walk, picnic, and to buy fresh veggies and fruits from farm market.
  • Old-Wish more flowers would have been in bloom. I felt some gardens were a little dried out and yet some were gorgeous. 22. Evergreen garden is awesome for a picnic!-2016 New- So they have added a couple of decorative displays. I really like the succulent desert little area. There were many more flowers in bloom this time around. And also have some events coming up this month including yoga in the park and movie date night. Really looking forward to that!-2017
