Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Went specifically to see the bonsai collection and was quite impressed by the variety, age, and styles. A nice place to spend an afternoon.

    Beautiful Garden Perfect for Photos. This garden is always so beautifully maintained and the perfect location for a picturesque stroll just off national mall

    Use this Nature Center as your base to find the elusive Capitol stones, hike through Rock Creek Park, or join the Planetarium programming.

    Accessible by public transportation and well maintained trails.

    I cam across this garden during a walk and entered on a whim. It was winter and raining so I did not see it at its best. It comprises a large garden surrounding the Washington international school housed in a large old mansion and the garden surrounds it on three sides. The entrances are off Macomb street and Klingle road. The garden is historic and includes many old trees, shrubs and no doubt flowers in summer. There are two main trails to follow - one which follows the Macomb stream and the other, the meadow trail, goes right around the garden to, at the Klingle road end, a lily pond. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
