Hershey Gardens opened in 1937 with Milton Hershey’s request to “create a nice garden of roses.” Through the years, the 3 1/2 acre rose garden has blossomed into 23 acres of botanical beauty providing visitors with unique experiences and enriching opportunities.
Overlooking the town of Hershey, Hershey Gardens features a breathtaking assortment of flowers and shrubs, a stately collection of rare, signature trees, and a calendar of events designed to delight visitors of all ages.
Indulge your senses in the color and variety of our brilliant seasonal displays and explore theme gardens, including our charming hands-on Children’s Garden. In the summer, walk among 300 fluttering butterflies in our popular outdoor Butterfly House. When planning your visit, check out "What’s In Bloom", "Calendar of Events" and "Family Fun" activities like the Great Garden Adventure!
