If you love flowers and fragrance than this is the place you will want to visit-Out in the country-fresh air and so close to the sky you will feel that you can stretch it-The lights from the park at night are amazing and welcoming

Nothing spectacular here. Can see a great overview or the park .. and the butterflies are neat, but the gardens weren't well kept.

A worthwhile way to spend a morning. Beautiful gardens, butterflies and helpful guides and volunteers. A great place to walk through and reflect on the beauty of Hershey grounds.

We decided to go to see the butterflies, but were amazed at the flowers still in bloom. The roses were beautiful. The set up of the gardens flowed really well. I would really like to return in the spring.

No you can not. These are well maintained gardens so I don't think want to risk killing a plant or grass from dogs.
