Stunning flowers and trees at the Rutgers Gardens
The Rutgers Gardens on Ryders Lane at the east side of New Brunswick is 50 acres of a large variety of trees and flowers. The park is best visited in the spring, but there are lovely blooming flowers throughout summer and fall. And in the winter, you can better appreciate what is reportedly the world's largest stand of American Holly trees.
Year round you can appreciate the bamboo forest. I know, I was shocked to see a bamboo forest in the middle of New Jersey as well! The winding pathway is near a small stream, and it's a very relaxed and calming environment.
Tours are available for $10/adult, $8/senior, $5/children, but on Saturdays, add $2.00 to each of the above prices. The tours are an in-depth look at the gardens in about an hour. To be frank, it's not really worth it. The gardens are open to the public for free. The gardens are open throughout the year from 8:30am to dusk. In New Jersey, in the winter, dusk is around 5:00pm. In the summer, it can be as late as 8:30pm or 9:00pm. [more]
