Bartram’s Garden

Bartram’s Garden

Open daily year-round, Bartram’s Garden offers an oasis of quiet fields and modest 18th-century farm buildings, where gardening first took root in America. Visitors can stroll through the upper kitchen garden and the fragrant flower gardens or visit the riverside meadow, brimming with grasses and wildflowers. On Saturdays from May through October, Bartram’s offers free kayaking and rowboating, giving visitors the opportunity to cruise down the Schuylkill River.
