Once upon a time, Chanticleer was the residence of a Main Line family. But when its owner passed away in 1990, the once-private space was opened up to the public as a garden designed sheerly to bring more beauty into the world. Chanticleer reopens for 2019 on March 27, so you’ll soon be able to explore its beautiful grounds.
Many of the specific gardens within Chanticleer harken back to its roots as a residence, like an old tennis court that’s been transformed into a lush natural space, and the Ruin Garden, which features stone remnants of the former Minder House. Other areas draw inspiration from other parts of the world, like the Asian Woods filled with plants from Korea, Japan, and China. Come and check out the garden this spring and summer, Wednesday through Sunday, for a $10 admission fee.
