TO OUR GARDEN
Thanks to the generosity of the Van Vleck Family and our many donors — and the dedication of our volunteers and staff — this property serves as an extraordinary resource for our community.
A center for horticulture, education, music, art and quiet contemplation, the gardens are open to the public for their enjoyment and the house is available to non-profits for meetings and events.
Our cell phone tour and Visitor’s Center are sources of information on the history of the property and its horticultural resources.
Your contributions help keep this a special place for all to enjoy and we welcome volunteers to help with our varied programs.
The restoration and improvement of our gardens and facilities were made possible by generous gifts, including:
The gardens are open to the public daily, free of charge. Donations are appreciated.
Hours: 8:00 am – 7:00 pm daily.
North Mountain Avenue gates close at 6:00 pm.
There are some guest parking spots available in the parking lot; additional street parking is available on Van Vleck Street, Upper Mountain Avenue and North Mountain Avenue.
The property is dedicated for public conservation/recreation under the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Green Acres Program. Van Vleck House & Gardens is a preservation project of The Garden Conservancy.
