You’re probably familiar with Bucks County Community College for their educational offerings, but they’re also the site of the beautiful Tyler Gardens. The Tyler Mansion is arguably the grandest home ever built in Bucks County and believed to be the last of the great estates ever constructed in the United States. In 1987, Tyler Hall (as the mansion is now known) and Tyler Formal Gardens were placed on the National Register of Historical Places. The Formal Gardens were constructed in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler to provide a formal landscape setting for their estate, Indian Council Rock. The four-tier Formal Gardens were influenced by French and Italian gardens and feature varieties of flora, beautiful lush lawns, dramatic stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, fountains, and bronze sculptures. Today, the Gardens provide a stunning backdrop for a wedding with immaculate landscaping, historic buildings and plenty of old world charm. (Tip: Piccolo Trattoria, a 2020 Bucks Happening List Winner for Catering, is one of the exclusive vendors at Tyler Gardens.) Tyler Gardens are located within the Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Campus at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA.
