Don't know where to start exploring? Try Sylvan Gardens:

Sylvan Gardens' rustic trails feature thousands of blooming daffodils, while winding through deep woods and open fields to broad pond views.

Sylvan Gardens is one of Chatham's best kept secrets, containing almost ten acres of undeveloped land and six hundred feet of freshwater pond shore. Formerly a 1920s plant nursery, previous owners cultivated extensive ornamental and native gardens, and experimented with grafting and hybridizing flowers and shrubs. In spring, customers delighted in strolling through the gardens to view, select and order from thousands of blooming bulbs clustered throughout the gardens.

In 2004 the Town of Chatham purchased 9.5 acres of the property and the Chatham Conservation Foundation holds the conservation restriction, so that it will forever remain conservation land. The property is cared for by the Friends of Sylvan Gardens .

Parking access is located on Old Main Street off Route 28 in West Chatham. Using GPS: 88 Old Main Street Chatham.
