Kathy’s Fall Activities: Longwood Gardens

1001 Longwood Rd, Kennett Square, PA

Longwood Gardens showcases vibrant horticultural designs, dancing fountains, family fun, and natural beauty for guests to enjoy all year round, and the autumn months are no exception. Despite having to shut their doors for a few days in September, they’re back up and running and they’re ready for the fall!

This fall, enjoy fun family time in Longwood’s Pumpkin Playground (October 6th-30th), featuring a seasonal display of pumpkins, gourds, and corn husk towers, as well as plenty of festive fall photo opportunities. And the fall fun doesn’t stop there.

Longwood’s Garden Railway is another family favorite. This multi-level world in miniature is the perfect place to gather and watch dozens of locomotives, including the always-popular Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends, rumble along hundreds of tracks nestled within a beautiful seasonal plant palette.

While you’re there, explore Longwood’s three treehouses, marvel at fall’s favorite flower during Chrysanthemum Festival (September 30-November 12), and soak in the fun of fountain performances at the Main Fountain Garden, including the last of this year’s Illuminated Fountain Performances; running Thursday through Saturday evenings through October 28.
