What’sÂ upÂ guys?
Looking to escape New Jersey without leaving New Jersey? Open up Google Maps, type inÂ Rutgers Gardens, get in your car and GO!
Rutgers Gardens is home to many different types of plants, wildlife, and an easy to navigateÂ trail.
The highlight of Rutgers Gardens is theÂ Bamboo ForestÂ (yes, they have a bamboo forest). We wereÂ immersed byÂ giant sticks of bamboo coming from all directions. It’s pretty easy to get lost and forget that youâ€™re in New Jersey and not the Himalayas.
AdditionallyÂ Rutgers Gardens is the home to many other types of plants, such as (brace yourselves. We couldn’t pronounce them either; we advise coming up with your own names for these suckers.)Â amorphaÂ canescens, berberis, ceanothusÂ americanus, hypericum (located in theÂ EllaÂ Quimby Water ConservationÂ Terrace.)
We can talk about theÂ vast plant life they supply at Rutgers Gardens ALL day, seriously, there are TOO many to name!
CHECK IT OUT
Rutgers Gardens is the perfect place to clear your mind, bring a date, bring your parents, laugh, cry, argue with your siblings, break up withÂ someone, get married (they hold weddings there!), it is the perfect place for a quick getaway without really getting away!
We held a meet at the Gardens this past weekend, it was such an incredible turnout!
