We visited the botanical garden on a Thanksgiving weekend and loved it. It is a fatanstic location to take family Christmas pictures. Also, you can walk freely and stay for as long as you’d like.

Always good for walks. A large, well kept garden with several different portions- a Korean pavilion, a lake, a hill, a duck and koi pond with gazebo- and tons of plants and flowers, including several species native to Virginia. Reminds me of a poor man's...More

Gorgeous walk through beautiful landscaping. Plenty of places to sit and just relax and enjoy the scenery. We came on a very hot day, but didn’t mind the heat with all of the shade it offers!!

It has a nice garden with plenty of plant life to see and study. The lake buts it all in perspective, and the Karen Bell is an added bonus. Pretty all seasons. $5 admission, half for children

A great place for a quiet wander round. Lots to see and just a short distance from Washington DC. Look to spend about 3 hours here.

Nice inexpensive garden. Has a Korean bell area, which is unique, along with a pond and flowers which follow the seasons. Half price for seniors.

This park is fun and enlightening. There are always plants blooming, every season. I used to volunteer in the gardening department so I know what hard work it is to keep everything looking so good. The flowers are beautiful and walking through the park is...More
