Linwood Gardens

Pavilion, New York


Our mission:

To preserve the gardens and tree peony collection for future generations to enjoy.

Linwood Gardens is located 35 miles southwest of Rochester in the farmlands of the Genesee Valley. Set in an historic landscape designed in the early 1900s, an Arts and Crafts style summerhouse is surrounded by ornamental trees and walled gardens with views that open out to the valley below.

Linwood has the quality of an island set apart from the everyday world. It offers a peaceful garden sanctuary for repose, reflection, and creative work.

The historic gardens feature a distinguished collection of tree peonies dating from 1940. Each spring when the tree peonies are in bloom,  Linwood celebrates
this special event with the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers.

Linwood Gardens is also a private residence. It is only open to the public for the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers,  and summer events.

We appreciate your courtesy!

Linwood Gardens is listed on the National and The New York State Register of Historic Places.
We are a Not-for-Profit organization.
