About Us:

Green Spring Gardens is a "must visit" for everyone in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. It's a year-round gold mine of information and inspiration for the home gardener. It's an outdoor classroom  for children and their families to learn about plants and wildlife. It's also a museum, a national historic site that offers glimpses into a long, rich history with colonial origins.

Lovely garden with lots to discover, both inside and outside. There is a secret children's garden that is very fun and bright tucked away behind the back left side of the main building. There are paths through woods and by ponds that have lots of enchanting places for new discoveries to be made. Inside there is a library and a glasshouse along with a gift shop.

Excellent! I attended a tea program which included a lecture from Queen Elizabeth I about herself and living in Renaissance times. Afterwards, we all sat down to a four course English tea. On my own, I strolled the beautiful gardens and visited the gift shop.

It's got paved trails and is delightfully landscaped with lots of flowering plants so perhaps best in spring. It's very nice for what it tries to be, which is a midsized garden park. There are bigger and more serious places not far away, including the National Arboretum, Mason Neck, and Huntley Meadows

Pretty gardens. Enjoyed the big spring plant sale today inspite of drizzle & mud. Many interesting native and other plants for sale.

It's a beautiful garden. Free entry, but donations are welcome. My kids loved the turtles in the pond. The flowers are pretty. The historical house is nice also.
