Whether strolling through its flower-filled gardens, picnicking under its majestic trees or touring its magnificent mansion, Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park is a very special place. The 50-acre estate is one of just two public gardens in all of the New York State Parks System. A serene respite just blocks away from downtown Canandaigua, Sonnenberg is a gift to the community from Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson.  Read More  

Covid-19/Spring 2020 Opening Message from the Executive Director:

On May 1st, we are planning to open our doors for our 47th Garden Season at Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, we are forced to cancel all events through April 30, 2020. Therefore our 2020 Wildflower walk and Orchid Show will be cancelled for this season. Seeing the close proximity of our May 9th Mother's Tea, we are postponing this special event until a later date in the season to celebrate our Moms with a special tea this summer. Given the COVID-19 Pandemic we are all having to endure. See you at the Gardens this year at the Thompson Estate.
