Hershey, PA really is a town for all ages; and Hershey Gardens is definitely a place for the whole family to enjoy. The gardens include tree specimens, grasses, other perennials, herbs, seasonal display gardens, a children’s garden, and butterfly house. There are picnic facilities, too, west of the rose garden.
It was fun seeing how excited kids got when the chocolate kiss fountain starting spewing steam.
The children’s garden also includes plantings for each letter of the alphabet.
There is a peaceful spot with a bridge, toadstools, and willows, dedicated to Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows.
The hoop house includes a pond with goldfish, and displays about growing veggies.
Once you’ve finished touring the rose garden and children’s garden, there is still a lot to see.
The paved pathway through Hershey Gardens is about a mile long; but, no doubt, you’ll be taking detours here and there, adding to your daily steps! Can you think of a better way to exercise your mind and body?!
