From the delicate shades of a tiny wildflower to the vibrant colors of massed annual plantings, the New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands is a place of beauty in any season. Here you can stroll amid the elegance of formal gardens, or wander along gentle paths winding through the woods.

The New Jersey State Botanical Garden includes 96 acres of specialty gardens surrounded by over 1000 acres of woodlands. NJBG is open daily from 8am to 8pm (6pm in winter), and Garden admission is always free.

Skylands is a safe haven for unusual plant species from around the world, and has one of the best plant collections in the state. The garden protects and preserves these plants as their natural habitats are changed forever by progress.
