My good friend Charlene invited me to go, and it was a beautiful tranquil experience. Although it’s not your playground destination, the flowers are beautiful, and downtown Montclair is walking distance away.

Huge field is behind the gardens with picnic tables, so bring a lunch. There is a house there too that has a cute gift shops for “Irisy” keepsakes.  The people at the entrance were friendly and had some great information to share.


Definitely if you have the kids, one of our favorite playgrounds is Edgemont Memorial Park after you are done enjoying the blooms. Completely fenced in too!!
