Close Your Eyes and Think of Spring

100_0829Check out the early 20th century landscape of the Cross Estate. The estate includes a formal, walled garden with ornamented grasses, shrubs, and perennials, a native plant garden, a wisteria-covered pergola, a pathway bordered by mountain laurel, and several large specimen trees. It is located in the New Jersey Brigade Encampment Area and maintained by the New Jersey Historic Garden Foundation, a volunteer garden organization.

The Gardens comprise formal and native gardens, a wisteria-covered pergola, and a mountain laurel allee. The Cross Estate is open from dawn to dusk. Parking is free, and there are no entry fees.

The Gardens are maintained by volunteers who meet every Wednesday morning from March to November.

Every year there is a plant sale, and there are opportunities for garden tours.
