Support Greenwood Gardens

 

Greenwood Gardens is a 28-acre public historic garden in Short Hills, New Jersey. Its terraced gardens, meadows, woodlands, grottoes and teahouses were designed in the early twentieth century by William Whetten Renwick. A time capsule of New Jersey’s gracious past and a haven of tranquility in the busy New York metropolitan area, the site’s original sweeping vista has been preserved and is extended on all sides by designated parkland.

After more than a century of private ownership, today Greenwood Gardens is a nonprofit organization, open to and supported by the public. Your support helps to ensure the beauty, safety and preservation of this treasure for generations to come.
