Leaming's Run Gardens

1845 Rt. 9 N., Swainton, NJ 08210

Property Description

Leaming's Run features 25 themed gardens, a fernery and a shady bamboo grove, it is a must visit for Jersey Shore visitors. Open to the public since 1978, it's been a favorite place to relax and enjoy lush gardens in harmony with the natural beauty surrounding them.

During August, Leaming's Run Gardens becomes a mecca for ruby-throated hummingbirds who come to feed before they migrate south on their long annual journey. Hidden among the serenity of the pines, the Colonial Farm brings to life the daily problems faced by the whalers who first settled Cape May County. Tobacco and cotton grow just as it did in 1695. A vegetable garden, laced with herbs, grows outside the one room log cabin. Even the farm animals are historically correct. Take a walk back in time and become part of the 18th century.
