My family and I enjoy going for walks and hikes on the grounds of Skyline Manor. During Spring, the early colorful flowers and the fragrant lilacs bloom. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous! The manor house was used in one of the episodes of the Sopranos and is quite majestic. Great place for weddings and picture taking. Events and tours are... More

I have been to the gardens multiple times. I have also taken the tour of the Mansion and the reflecting pools. Take the family and bring a picnic basket. A great way to spend a day.

Very picturesque. There is a smaller gated moraine garden, near where I usually start my hikes. It's a very idyllic place on... More

This is a must see for nature lovers, and those who like to experience Gods Canvass. There hasn't been one visit where friends haven't had to drag me away at the end of the day. A must see and a joy to behold

This is the NJ Botanical Garden, and it is blooming for most months. Be sure to check the website for events. Great picnic and hiking.
