Presby Memorial Iris Gardens is one of the most beautiful spots in Montclair when their lovely flowers are in bloom (around May to June). This amazing collection of irises features literally thousands of plants and hundreds of different varieties. They even have a collection of historical irises, some of which are hundreds of years old. When they are in bloom, the gardens are so colorful and spectacular! The area is very large, with plenty of room to move around and lots of different beds to view. There are empty spaces for kids and pets to run around and play and benches to rest and take in the view. During the blooming season there is a drink and snack stand and a gift shop where you can buy a selection of rhizomes and other items. Just visiting the gardens is free and open all the time. This is one of my favorite local attractions and I highly recommend it to everyone.
