Leamings Run Gardens
(south)

Just a short drive from Garden State Parkway Exit 13 in Cape May County lies a piece of paradise called Leamings Run Gardens. A visit to this enchanted forest left me refreshed and with a renewed appreciation of the beauty that Mother Nature has bestowed upon us. Twenty-five themed gardens are surrounded by bridges, ponds, nooks and Leaming's Run, a small creek meandering through the property. A broad pathway through woodlands, ferneries and even a bamboo mini-forest meanders between the gardens, offering a mile-long stroll that won't soon be forgotten.


Perennial Hibiscus(rose mallows) framing this pond are almost in bloom (mid July).

Frogs are just part of a lively ecosystem here at Leaming's Run. Dragonflies are especially dominant here, but butterflies and birds abound. August brings masses of hummingbirds en route to their winter breeding grounds.

Two members of the PineyPower family enjoy the mysterious bamboo forest.

Piney III was fascinated by the small stone statue of a boy!

A gazebo provides a quiet resting spot for visitors.
Benches are also located all along the pathways.

This one room log cabin is typical of those built by whalers who first settled Cape May County. A vegetable garden, tobacco, cotton, peanuts and herbs grow outside.

Goats, chickens and even a peacock are in the farmyard!

The Pine Barrens is becoming a popular tourist destination. It offers history, nature, boating and fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and tranquility. It's important to families who live here, whether for a few years or many generations, that our peace and tranquility be preserved. Keep in mind that the local lawyer or doctor won't look any different than his neighbors. Thousand dollar suits aren't what impresses people of the Pines - taking care of nature and fellow man is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know that as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect for the flora and fauna, for the historical buildings or their remains, and show respect for the "locals". Walk and drive gently. Treat our Pine Barrens as you would would want a visitor to treat your own home town.
