Explore Wilmington's Public Gardens
Longwood Gardens is one of the premier botanical destinations of the world, with more than a thousand acres of indoor and outdoor gardens, woodlands, meadows, and majestic fountain displays. Thanks to a comprehensive overhaul known as Longwood Reimagined, the gardens are more spectacular than ever.
Many of our most beautiful public gardens can be found on the grounds of former du Pont family estates, such as Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, the Mt. Cuba Center, the Hagley Museum and Library, and the gardens at the Nemours Estate.
Individually, they're magnificent. Together, they foster a conservationist ideal that makes Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley one of the most carefully preserved regions along the East Coast.
