Rutger's Garden, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, is a 180-acre garden which is comprised of a series of horticultural collections. The oldest dates back to 1927. Some of these include an American Hollies Collection, Shrub Collection, Shade Tree Collection, Ornamental Tree Collection, and a Bamboo Forest.
There are plenty of walking paths, perennials, shrubs, exotic flowers, and even a 92-acre pond for visitors to enjoy.
The garden is open daily from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Admission is free. (In case you're wondering, income for the garden is generated through the rental of the pavilion and a log cabin for events. And also by donations.)
Before I go, I'd like to share a new book trailer video for my recently-released book, Don't Feed the Elephant. This one was done by ePublishingeXperts, the illustrator of the book, and features animation of the illustrations and a narration done by me. If you've never heard my voice, you might find it interesting !
