This is absolutely gorgeous. We were melting in the heat, but the gardens even provide shade umbrellas. The rose garden is stunning. I would suggest going early in the day to beat the heat.

The gardens are a short walk from Hershey Hotel so that was a bonus. I can’t speak to the value as garden entry was included in our package but I’m glad we went. The gardens are on the smaller side and are well maintained with...More

Hershey Gardens cannot be compared to Longwood Gardens or other really iconic gardens, but it has some unique attractions of its own. Most reviewers mentioned the Rose Garden, the Children's Garden or the Butterfly House. I enjoyed all of those sites, too, but I was...More

Pros: very enjoyable afternoon, lovely grounds, and pleasant staff. Walking paths were very nice, too. The Butterfly house alone is worth the trip. Cons: quite a few weeds.

Whether you go to gather ideas or just enjoy, the winding garden paths create a lovely oasis that's worth the time.
