  • I have always loved the Gardens and it's now even more special that my sister is getting married there. We go semi-annually to their Dog Days events to walk the dogs through the gardens. We have also enjoyed the annual RISE of the Jack O Lanterns here. It's a beautiful, family friendly atmosphere.
  • Beautiful flowers! Lovely grass. All the scenes were great. I visited the Love temple it wasn't newly done but there was a straight view of a part of the mansion. I saw about three people dressed in bride and groom attire on the same day. There are seats for sitting and relaxing in between a walk. I didn't get to tour the mansion, maybe next time I will.
  • They have free tours of the mansion - last about 45 min. Or you can wander yourself - they have some notes in each of the rooms with descriptions. The mansion and grounds are kept up very nicely. There's various different areas - open and grass, wooded and forest-like, as well as a some specifically planted areas like the rose garden, pond, and the paths between them. There's benches scattered about the gardens so you can sit and just enjoy the serenity. Tons of tree lined lawns to stroll about as well. They have a garden shop and a small cafe as well.
  • A nice place to have a picnic and some relaxed time. A lot to walk if u want to c the whole place, it's a lot tiring to walk the whole session ... it's a mind calming feel when u live and work in NY ;) Better carry water as few water dispensers don't work, and even if they do, it's not cold. Only one cafe in the park which is obviously priced on the higher side, so u know what to do. Be sure to visit the Rose Garden and the house.
  • I always love visiting this oasis of beauty. It is a great place to view extraordinary gardens and to picnic. The staff is always pleasant. And I love the gift shop. Those all the reasons I am a member. OWG is a Long Island gem worth supporting.
