Linwood Gardens, a private garden, is located in Linwood, New York, 35 miles southwest of Rochester in the farmlands of the Genesee Valley. The garden landscape was designed in the early 1900s, with an Arts and Crafts style summerhouse, walled gardens with pools and fountains, ornamental trees, and a view of the valley beyond.
The gardens include a distinguished collection of Japanese and American tree peonies featured each spring at the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers. During the summer months, Linwood Gardens offers a peaceful garden sanctuary for workshops, open garden days and wedding ceremonies.
Our mission is to preserve the gardens and the tree peony collection for future generations to enjoy.
