So much of the nation’s horticultural history is rooted in the Philadelphia region that it has been dubbed “the cradle of horticulture.” Today, Philadelphia has earned its place as ‘America’s Garden Capital’ with a surplus of public gardens offering a wide variety of horticultural display, and events, all year long.
More public gardens than anywhere else in the country.
Philadelphia has over 30 public gardens, arboreta, and historic landscapes, all located within 30 miles of Philadelphia.
When planning your next visit to Philadelphia, be sure to spend a day exploring nature in our region. No matter the season, America’s Garden Capital boasts some of the best outdoor activities in the greater Philadelphia area.
