A great place to take a stroll if you're on the Virginia tech campus or in Blacksburg. The garden is beautiful with some cool art exhibits and great spots to sit and observe the garden or read a book. A great place with great scenery!

Has free 30 minute parking in back, which is about what you'll need if you want a casual stroll through this diverse garden. Or you can run through it in 10 minutes, your preference. They have some open-to-the-sun areas, and nice shade gardens, a few water features and numerous works of art of varying quality and oddness sprinkled throughout. Entrance... More

Hahn Gardens is so peaceful and relaxing. It is a great place to sit and think or de-stress. The coy pond and stream are just beautiful. There are plenty of benches and a gazebo to sit and enjoy the surroundings all tucked into the lush plantings. It's my favorite spot on campus. It is free, but there are limited visitor... More

This horticultural garden is free and open to the public. It's beautiful and a great place for a quiet and romantic date. Currently, there's an excellent art exhibit going on which, again, is free. If you have the time while you are visiting Blacksburg, definitely a place to go.

We were visiting our grandson who was taking some summer courses at VT. After running around for much of the day, he asked what we wanted to do next. We suggested the gardens and are glad that we did. They are very well done and provided a restful hour of enjoyment.

This gem, nestled on the Tech Campus, is a delight in all seasons. The only downside to this free garden is the limited parking spaces; be careful not to get a ticket during the day. The paths are easy to navigate and the majority of the plants are labeled, something a gardner will appreciate. There are benches as well as... More

Stopped here while visiting the Virginia Tech campus. Well worth a 1/2 hour or hour sidetrip. Beautiful lily pond with colorful fish and plenty of other gorgeous flowers.

We came to this location to do our daughter's senior pictures, lots of beautiful trees/flowers/greenery as a backdrop for beautiful photos to be taken. We plan to return to do some family pictures next.

Tulips were in bloom. Nice little area with a fish pond, small waterfall. Quiet little place near va tech campus. Enjoy stopping here when in town.
