Nearby Chanticleer Garden Named one of the Top Gardens in America!
If you live anywhere along Philadelphia’s Main Line, you don’t need a 3-hr. drive to Washington, DC to experience cherry blossoms. About 15 min. from the Great Valley House is the beautiful Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne. April is National Garden Month, and to celebrate, TripAdvisor, has named the top 10 public gardens in the country. Two gardens in the Philadelphia region, Chanticleer Gardens and Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square were on the list.
Chanticleer is located at 786 Church Road, Wayne, PA and is open March 30 – October 30, Wednesday – Sunday, 10 AM – 5 PM. May through Labor Day, the gardens are open to 8 PM on Friday evenings.
On their website, the tag line for Chanticleer is ‘a pleasure garden’ and no words were ever truer! The 31-acre pleasure gardens features tropicals, perennials, and containers; a colorful cut flowers garden, woodlands, water garden, and ruin garden. A visit to Chanticleer will have you agreeing with the London’s Financial Times, which called the gardens, “planted to perfection”.
