Through the year, Snug Harbor has something going on. Between the museum, to the botanical gardens to the Chinese Scholar Garden there is a beauty throughout the grounds. Check their website for special events and the hours of their different areas

There is so much happening at Snug Harbor you won't be disappointed. And during quiet times grab a book, pick your favorite garden and just enjoy the sheer beauty of the garden.
