Come explore the Garden of the Garden State!
From the delicate shades of a tiny wildflower to the vibrant colors of massed annual plantings, the New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands is a place of beauty in any season. Here you can stroll amid the elegance of formal estate gardens, wander along gentle paths winding through the woods, or hike the surrounding hillsides.
The Botanical Garden includes 96 acres of specialty gardens surrounded by over 1000 acres of woodlands. Skylands is a safe haven for unusual plant species from around the world, and has one of the best plant collections in the state. The garden protects and preserves these plants as their natural habitats are changed forever by progress.
