We visited the garden in late April. There was a lot of beautiful trees, shrubs, and flower everywhere. This is our favorite place to visit in Norfolk.
Absolutely the best way to spend a few hours any season and any weather. If you live in the area, you should become a member and visit often. If you are visiting from out of town, add this place on your list of sites.
I have an annual pass. This is a great place to visit and bring guests. Always beautiful with lots of places to stroll and enjoy the florals. Small café has good food and also has a gift shop. Also have done the "owl prowl" at night. Lots of different activities are offered year long.
This is one of Norfolk's best attractions. Beautiful gardens to stroll and great playing areas for young kids. Impressive kids water fountain park and trails, along with a nautical playing area with swings and slides. The butterfly exhibit and grees house is excellent for youg kids to adults to learn all about butterfly's. We go there at least once or... More

We visit for the Christmas lights display in December. In July, the Tidewater Striders running club sponsors fun running races on Tuesday nights followed by pizza and beverages. Check their website. Oh, and there are flowers and trees, too.
We have a yearly membership. Each Sunday we visit and fast walk for an hour to keep up our training for 3 and 5 mile runs. Throughout the year the Gardens are in bloom. Now we are moving int the Azalea season and in my opinion that is what the Gardens do best. However, do not miss out on all... More
The gardens were beautiful! Because of how cold it has been everything wasn't bloomed but it was a peaceful day and it was so relaxing to walk around and smell all the beautiful flowers!
A taste of Spring in beautiful surroundings and opportunity for a relaxing walk. There's also a tram if you just want to relax.
I went here for a solo day trip and it was worth the trip. Although the grounds are still in the prep stages for spring blooming there was still lots to appreciate ! Very clean, friendly staff , easy parking and a very reasonable cost... Made for a great day trip!!
