Hershey Gardens and Butterfly House
Take a break from all the theme park and chocolate madness and head to Hershey Gardens and Butterfly House, a lush oasis escape we’re sure your group is going to love. Botanical education and added exercise abound, Hershey Gardens provides groups with 23 acres of local wildlife bliss. Originally created in 1937 per Milton Hershey’s request to ‘create a nice garden of roses’, the garden has grown today into a regionally celebrated garden spot, transforming from a single plot garden to a multi-acre green space masterpiece.
See the fine flowers, shrubs, rare and signature trees, butterfly house, and Children's Garden during your visit, plus the many specifically themed gardens throughout. Hike through the Historic Hershey Rose Garden, Seasonal Display Garden, M.S Hershey Tribute Garden, Perennial and Herb Gardens, High point gardens, Oriental Grasses and Japanese Gardens, and Bill Bowman Tributary Garden. There is also the aforementioned children’s garden for the younger ones, complete with 32 different themed areas/gardens. There will be several different educational programs for all ages, not to mention the onsite Oak Grove and Arboretum as well!
