Greenwood Gardens is a beautiful Millburn-Short Hills property that offers a quiet place to enjoy nature, and also features many events and special programs. This garden used to be a private estate until 2003 when the Blanchard family decided that this Millburn-Short Hills property would make a terrific public garden. Spanning 28 acres and surrounded by the South Mountain Reservation, this garden has been formed in the Arts and Crafts and Classical garden designs. Guests can find Italianate garden terraces, moss-covered paths, wildflower meadows, ornamental trees and shrubs, and much more. People who live nearby and those wishing to escape the noise of the big city visit the garden often.
