Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, PA is a spectacular 35-acre garden that is open to the public from April through October.
In 1913, Adolph and Christine Rosengarten completed their country house, Chanticleer, in Wayne on Philadelphia’s Main Line. The manor house was designed by architect Charles L. Borie; Landscape Architect Thomas Sears designed the terraces and some of the gardens. Upon inheriting the estate, the Rosengartens’ son, Adolph, Jr., created the Chanticleer Foundation to ensure the grounds would be developed as a public garden.
Since the death of Adolph, Jr., in 1990, the gardens have undergone considerable change, and are constantly evolving under the direction of a team of horticulturalists, each one responsible for one of the dozen or so distinct areas of the garden.
Chanticleer is a leader in sustainable gardening through progressive initiatives involving solar power, rainwater recycling, composting, and organic turf, soil, and plant health care treatments.
We also commend Chanticleer for their commitment to planting trees not only in the garden but also in our community.
If you plan to visit, we recommend schedul-ing adequate time to relax and experience the peaceful nature of the grounds. For more information, visit www.chanticleergarden.org.
