NJ Botanical Gardens / Skylands Manor

2 Morris Road, Ringwood, NJ 07456

Situated in Ringwood State Park, the New Jersey Botanical Gardens includes 96 acres of specialty gardens surrounded by 1,000 acres of woodlands with extensive views of the Ramapo Mountains, and the mansion - Skylands Manor. The gardens contain an far-reaching variety of plants, evergreens and deciduous trees and shrubs in specialty areas. Of particular interest are the crabapple vista, terraced gardens, perennial and annual gardens and woodland paths. ● Designed by John Russell Pope for Clarence McKensie Lewis, a stockbroker and civil engineer, the Skylands Manor resembles a Jacobean estate located in the English countryside some 400 years ago. Built in the 1920s, this 44-room mansion was constructed of native stone and half-timbers, and blends into the landscape.
