Welcome to Greenwood Gardens

The gardens are now closed for the season. We will reopen on May 5, 2023.

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.

Celebrating 20 Years of Nature, Beauty, and History!

We are excited to celebrate 2023, as it marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of Greenwood Gardens, a major milestone in our history. Preserving this property to benefit future generations was the clear vision of our Co-founders, the late Peter P. Blanchard III and his wife Sofia, who incorporated the organization as a non-profit in 2003. Their dream became a reality, thanks to their hard work and inspiration, not to mention that of so many others: a passionate founding Board of Trustees, active volunteers, experts from the Garden Conservancy, a dedicated staff, loyal members, and of course, visitors like you!
