A historic garden overlooking the Genesee Valley.

Linwood Gardens, a private garden, is located in Linwood, New York, 35 miles southwest of Rochester in the farmlands of the Genesee Valley. The original 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.

Open

Every spring we welcome the public to enjoy our collection of Japanese and American tree peonies in full bloom during the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers. The gardens include a distinguished collection of Japanese and American tree peonies featured each spring at the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers.
