"A Day at Two Gardens" Group Tour

Please note that this tour will not be available until autumn 2020 due to renovations at Greenwood Gardens. Please consider booking our "Horticulture and History Tour" instead.

Visit two of New Jersey's premier historic public gardens, Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit and Greenwood Gardens in Short Hills. These distinct estate gardens, located within 3.5 miles of each other, provide visitors with a glimpse into the stately life of families whose appreciation and love of the land flourished into a legacy.

The day includes 45 minute guided walking tours at each location, and allows time for lunch in between at one of the many fine area eateries in downtown Summit or Short Hills. Please note: Hat Tavern of Summit and Basilico of Short Hills, both offer a special garden lunch menu for A Day at Two Gardens visitors. Please contact them directly for a reservation.
