Guided tours of both locations!

These two gardens, both in Somerset County, are incredibly different landscape sites. Colonial Park includes the renown Rudolph W. van der Goot Rose Garden, a Fragrance Garden, and an Arboretum. The rose garden is an All-American Rose Selection Display Garden and contains more than 3,000 roses. The Fragrance and Sensory Garden is specifically designed for the visually impaired and designed for visitors to look, touch and smell. The Leonard J. Buck Garden is a naturalistic rock garden which begun in the 1930s, featuring outcroppings and woodland trails lined with ferns, shade perennials, naturalized bulbs and drifts of delicate wildflowers. The garden stems from a continental glacier from thousands of years ago, resulting in the form of Moggy Hollow.
