  • Just go. If you are young, just go. If you are not so young, just go. Of you are an old fart, just go. The theme here is don't wait...it is beautiful, the Garden staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and the Gardens are simply beautiful.
  • The mist beautiful place in the state of new jersey offers an escape from material distractions and offers a great connection to nature
  • It wasn't the best time to visit [still snow covered] - so I was a bit disappointed. Especially since a good number of reviews had said that it would always be an interesting place to visit. The layout is a bit convoluted and it's not clear on directions - so where to walk was confusing. This place was suggested as part of a "Roadside Attraction" I would think not .. it takes you off the beaten path to get here and you pretty much have to be a local in the know to figure much - if anything - out.
  • Rutgers Gardens is a beautiful place to visit in spring because of all the lilacs. This place has plenty of scenery including a bamboo forest, lush green grass for picnic's, tall trees, and many different flower specimens. I really recemend visiting!
  • Its really pretty, and there are an infinite amount of trails to go on, and its perfect to just get lost in nature.
