The beauty of a blooming garden doesn’t only have to be seen to be appreciated – at the Fragrance and Sensory Garden at Colonial Park in Somerset, NJ, visitors with visual or physical disabilities can enjoy the garden as well: the garden appeals to all of the senses and the sunken garden is surrounded by a stone wall and raised beds, allowing visitors to easily touch the plants.

For other garden ideas, go to our website and click on things to do - there's a whole section on gardens and outdoor places to visit.
