Green Spring Gardens
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.
A hidden gem of a park quietly tucked away from a bustling urban intersection nearby, with quaint colonial brick house, manicured gardens, leafy trails and even a botanical playground for the kids, a wonderful, family_friendly environment.
Love all the flowers. The ponds and brook are beautiful as well.
Free admission. The gardens show off plants and varieties that are well adapted to Northern Virginia. A real gem of a park. Great place to relax.
It's almost hidden, but this park is wonderful. I was there for a plant sale a few months ago and was happily surprised by the selection and conversation offered by the vendors.
Beautiful park and a great, peaceful place to walk. If you want to walk around in the evenings, be sure to park outside the gate. They close the gate at 5:00 and you won't be able to get your car out after the staff leaves.
