On first impression, the beauty and tranquility of Cantigny Gardens will take your breath away.
Gardens at Cantigny
Nestled among 29 acres are beautiful landscapes that showcase the life cycles of trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals in stunning displays. But the gardens are more than just a pretty face. They are an inspiration, teaching amateur and professional gardeners alike the practicality and beauty of plant species that perform well in a Midwest climate.
The Idea Garden
The Idea Garden was designed for the amateur gardener in all of us and seeks to educate and inspire creativity. This one-acre garden includes multiple sections that change from year-to-year and season-to-season. With more than 300 varieties of vegetables, herbs, shrubs and flowers, the Idea Garden is sure to spark an interest in young and old alike.
Guided Garden Tours
Tours are available upon request and can be arranged for groups of 10 adult guests or more. To help us plan for your visit, we request that group reservations be made at least two weeks in advance. We will work with your group and accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. All money generated from garden tours will be used for additional garden programming.
