Green Spring Gardens

4603 Green Spring Road

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.

Just beautiful, wonderful to walk around, big open spaces for kids to run around, lovely gardens and flowers to enjoy, the lake and trees are nice to walk around... Just pretty much my definition of a "happy place" to go to. The occasional shows and events in the main building are always worth it too. We've seen raptors, puppet shows, nature talks and more - often with free snacks and drinks and sometimes completely free on their own. The outdoor concerts, while rarer, are always a blast. Great place, great times, great memories. Thank you!

Beautiful place to visit with an stunning wife and array of colors and plants. The children's garden has picnic tables, tree stumps for climbing, a chalkboard, and there are small watering cans the kids enjoy using. They can fill them up themselves from a rain barrel. The succulents are quite lovely as well. I particularly enjoy how many things are labeled so that I can learn some of the names of the new flowers and plants I like.

Beautiful place, even in winter. Take time to visit the Glasshouse in the Horticulture Center. The staff is very friendly and helpful, too.

A nice walking path, plenty of green space and ample parking. The indoor section is also nice. Especially for b-day parties. Always nice people here.
