Welcome to Greenwood Gardens

Greenwood Gardens is a treasured 28-acre public garden, located in Short Hills, New Jersey, approximately 25 miles west of New York City.  A former private estate, Greenwood is an enchanted hideaway, graced with terraced gardens, woodlands, meadows, grottoes, fountains, Arts and Crafts follies, and winding paths.  Through our mission of connecting people with nature in a historic garden oasis, Greenwood offers all who drive through our gates a restorative sense of nature, beauty, and history every time they visit.

Greenwood is closed for the season. We will re-open May 1, 2022.
