Lots of privacy and flowers and sunny skies or those gothic gray ones but who cares because you are in Virginia Beach and except for the greasy cruisers in the thick of summer, this place is awesome and reasonably priced for good times. The flowers and trees and paths here are sewn together by mother nature and Jah and it... More

The staff here is outstanding and the gardens are worth taking much more time to peruse than I had. I hope to have an excuse... More

We went to this garden in December for the light show (which is incredible and a must visit in December!) but we arrived early to look around. It's a really beautiful place. While it's near the airport, there are lakes and winding paths and you feel a long distance away from civilization.

My wife and I were married in the rose garden in October 2008. Who knew that roses bloom twice each year and the fall bloom was at peak during our wedding. The folks at the garden were the best and helped to make our special day - very special. We visit whenever we come back to Norfolk and love the... More
