Tour the Garden

Thank you for visiting this year! The gardens are now closed for the season. We will reopen on May 5, 2023.

Self-Guided Tours

Make the most of your time at Greenwood Gardens by learning about its history, landscape, and horticulture. We offer a variety of guided tours throughout the season, including exclusive tours for members. Each visitor receives a self-guided tour pamphlet and map as they enter. You should allot 75 minutes to fully appreciate the garden on your self-guided tour.

Docent-Led Tours

Our friendly and knowledgeable docents lead tours throughout the season. With the garden ever-changing, you are sure to learn something new each time you visit. We offer a variety of tours exploring various aspects of the garden and the history of the site. Subject to availability.

Themed Tours

Greenwood offers a wide range of tours inspired by the unique characteristics of Greenwood, such as plant, tree and bird walks, twilight tours, turkey talks, and more. For a complete listing of upcoming themed tours and to pre-register visit our Program page.

Group Tours

If you are looking to provide a memorable experience for your special group, be sure to schedule a revitalizing tour at Greenwood Gardens, where nature, beauty, and history beckon.  This one-hour docent-led guided walking tour for ten or more highlights the history, landscape, and architecture of this 1920s Arts and Crafts-style garden, graced by Italianate garden terraces, stately fountains, winding moss-covered paths, iconic follies, whimsical ornaments, romantic grottoes, majestic allees of London plane and spruce trees, and interactive wildlife at the barnyard.  In 2022, Greenwood was voted “New Jersey’s Prettiest Garden” by New Jersey Family magazine.

You and your group are welcome to bring a bag lunch and eat on-site in Adelaide’s, our covered outdoor Pavilion, or to dine at one of the area’s local eateries.

Tours are available Monday – Sunday from May through November.
Fee for Garden Tour is $20 per person. Reservations must be made in advance.
