Garden State Gardens strives to increase the public’s awareness of and appreciation for the beauty and horticultural, educational, artistic and historic value of New Jersey’s public gardens. This is to be accomplished through the collaboration of allied public garden professionals as they work to promote public garden visitation, development, stewardship and support.

This free presentation will take you on a visual tour of nearly 30 of New Jersey's public gardens that are members of the Garden State Gardens Consortium. Learn about the history and unique characteristics of each garden.

Discover your favorites and those you have yet to visit!​​
