Must-See Philadelphia Gardens
Garden Design's self-guided day trip to 3 of the best gardens in the Philadelphia area
With over thirty gardens in as many miles, it is no wonder that Philadelphia is known as America’s Garden Capital. Yet local landscape designer and craftsman Jerry Fritz had no hesitation in recommending these three outstanding gardens for an unforgettable day trip.
This route takes you through the rolling countryside of Winterthur to a unique arboretum set within a prestigious college campus before finally arriving at what is arguably America’s most exciting public garden; Chanticleer. Each destination has its own unique flavor, which together create a recipe for the perfect outing.
