N.J. Botanical Garden
Ringwood State Park
The N.J. Botanical Garden consists of 96 acres within Ringwood State Park in the Ramapo Mountains. It was originally the estate of New York stockbroker Clarence Lewis who built the manor house (Skylands Manor) and grounds in the 1920’s. It was purchased by the state in 1966.
The gardens are open year round and are free of charge. They are maintained by volunteers.
