  • It's hard to believe you're so close to a city and major roads. The Gardens have a varied experience. There is a section with tended perennial gardens with pond, another with giant holly trees, there'...  more »
  • We go on a picnic if possible. A lot of wild animals around. Advise for a picnic and nature lovers.

  • I love this place, the gardens are beautiful and well kept. They have a shop open on weekends I haven't been to yet. If you like catching pokemon they have plenty of stops and gyms. I personally love wandering around the rain garden. I love listening to the frogs and water run. Also if you're lucky some chipmunks will come and hang out. Also the gazebo by the rain garden is gorgeous!
  • I went to Rutgers Garden last weekend with my boyfriend. It was my first time. I used Google Maps to get there and was able to find it easily. There was a woman who greeted us and gave us a flyer for an upcoming Jazz event in the Garden. She was friendly and warm. She directed us on where we could park. The park was beautiful with different floral arrangements and trees. Certain trees had a description of the type of flower or bush it was. Very informational. I wish they had more signs directing us where to go to see certain attractions. I didn't get to see the Bamboo Forest which I really wanted to see. I am going back this weekend to see that. The address that shows up on Google map is Ryders Lane but they advise on the voicemail from the Rutgers Garden call center to use the address 140 Log Cabin Road.
  • Awesome place to walk around. Beautiful trails. Good place to just enjoy nature.
  • This place has so many pokestops! And two gyms! Usually ponytas as well. Gardens are not bad.
  • Unlike Selena Thompson, I have never been kicked out of Rutgers Gardens for taking pictures. I know you need a permit if you are a professional photog. Other wise never a problem.
