Welcome to Hershey Gardens

Hershey Gardens opened in 1937 with Milton Hershey’s request to “create a nice garden of roses.” More than 80 years later, the small 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 various programs designed to delight visitors of all ages.

Indulge your senses in the color and variety of our brilliant seasonal displays and theme gardens, including the indoor, tropical Butterfly Atrium and the hands-on Children’s Garden.
