Rutgers Gardens


Rutgers Gardens is a self-sustaining operation that relies on public support. We are one of the few botanical gardens in the country that does not charge a visitors fee and is open 365 days a year.

Rutgers Gardens, located on Ryders Lane, on the outskirts of Cook campus, is a gorgeous setting for the many different programs, special events, and recreational activities that take place here. The offi cial botanic garden of Rutgers University–New Brunswick features 60 acres of designed beds, specialty gardens, tree and shrub collections, lawns, and walking paths, adjoining the 70-acre Frank G. Helyar Woods. A place of learning and beauty, it is our goal to provide a fun, educational, and engaging place for students, faculty, and the community to enjoy the natural world.
