Part of the Morristown National Historical Park, the Cross Estate Gardens aren’t really secret but they are located in a quiet and secluded place in Morristown, NJ. While searching for public gardens in New Jersey, I was surprised to find this gem of a garden not too far away from where I live.

Tranquil, serene, and texturally luxuriant, according the National Park website, “the meditative and manicured grounds are the perfect setting to read, relax, or enjoy the quiet.” This is a place I know I will find myself when I need a quiet and restful space surrounded by exquisite beauty.
