Tucked away on the banks of the River Raritan, Elmer B. Boyd Park is a great place to spend some quality time with your loved ones. The park is spread over 20 acres where different events and festivals are arranged throughout the year. The paved walkway along the riverbank is dotted with signs that explain the local history. Many people come here to catch the spectacular view of the skyline of the city.

Rutgers Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful place to get some fresh air and walk around. Various garden types; vegetable, shrub, flower, etc. Farmers market open on summer Fridays. Friendly volunteers are nice to talk to. Nice for all ages and it's free!

  • It's a beautiful place for pictures of landscape, flowers, and trees. I especially like the bamboo forest with it's tunnel like appeal. It is similar to what you get when driving down street with large trees bending above your head. But with the thinnest of bamboo it's a nicer sight. Waiting for the bamboos to fill in.

  • Fantastic. Many improvements have been made over the years, such as wayfinding signs, and public restrooms, complete with composting toilets. Beautiful flower garden, and bamboo forest are the star attractions.

  • I went with my daughter and her friends here to take pictures for their prom. I had always heard about Rutgers Gardens but this was my first time attending. While there I encountered a woman who claimed she led the youth program there. I noticed that she was harassing minorities about taking pictures in the gardens. There were no signs anywhere in the gardens stating that pictures are prohibited. At one point she told us that if we wished to continue to take pictures to go to Taco Bell down the street. I’m not sure if this was a racial comment we are Hispanic but none the less it was rude. I have worked for Rutgers UBHC and as a Part time lecturer for the Rutgers School of Social Work. I have never felt more disrespected in my life. I can’t comment on the gardens themselves because she literally harassed us all throughout the park and therefore ruined my entire experience.

  • Its a nice and beautiful garden. There is no entrance fees. You can walk and enjoy greenery. In spring, there are so many flowers. Parking on one side is like for 20 cars but there is also overflow parking other side.
