The One Enchanting Place In New Jersey That Must Go On Your Bucket List Immediately
Have you ever been to a place so beautiful that it seemed surreal? New Jersey is home to a host of mesmerizing locations, but the Leonard J. Buck Garden in Far Hills is truly breathtaking. A year-round gem, I highly recommend a spring or summer visit followed by a second trip in the fall. Admission is free though a small donation is suggested.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

You can find the Leonard J. Buck Garden at 11 Layton Road in Far Hills. Stop by the visitor center and arrange a guided tour for a small fee, or explore the gardens for yourself. Current hours are 10-4, Monday through Friday, 10-5 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday.
Enjoy special events like Bonsai For Beginners, Woodland Walks, Photography Workshops and more. Next Sunday (4/30) the garden will be hosting a family-friendly Scavenger Hunt.
