New Jersey Botanical Gardens at Skylands

2 Morris Road

Ringwood, New Jersey 07456

On September 15, 1985, Governor Thomas Kean declared NJBG as New Jersey’s official state Botanical Garden – literally the Garden of the Garden State!
For the last 35+ years, it has served 
the citizens of the state and visitors from all around the world. 

Created from an elegant private estate, New Jersey Botanical Garden is now an all-season park with formal gardens, specialty gardens, native gardens, and expansive woodlands. It’s a place of beauty and a delight for the senses.

The New Jersey Botanical Garden is currently open from 8am to 8pm.   Officers will be available to assist with directing visitors at that time.

Admission to the Botanical Garden itself is always free, however during summer months there is a parking fee charged by the state
