Visitors are in for an adventure of the senses when they wander through Chanticleer , a 35-acre “pleasure garden” on the grounds of the old Rosengarten estate.

The gardeners here are also artists, and they design their own installations, incorporating wood, stone and metal; thus, guests will want to explore every nook and cranny of the trails that lead through orchards, wildflower meadows and perennials nestled among stone ruins.

Adolph Rosengarten, Jr., heir to the family who founded the Merck pharmaceutical empire, donated the 30-acre Wayne estate to the Chanticleer Foundation in 1990.
