Nice Place to arrange family events

It has both indoors and outdoors facilities. During summer this is wonderful place for a family get-together. During Winter one can arrange smaller parties ( 100 or less )

My spouse and I got tickets on line to avoid the wait. The tickets allow for timed entrances, so there is never a crowd. You walk through in about 30 minutes a wonderful display of lights - some on trees, but the best are the jumping fish in the "stream of blue/green" lights, the tunnel that changes colors and the...

I lived in Vienna for over a year before I went to Meadowlark, and then I couldn't stop going back. It's the perfect size - about 100 acres - with wonderful little zones: a meadow, a lawn overlooking a pond, etc. I've been in every season except winter, and it's never overcrowded, always peaceful. If you're able to go mid-day... More

Visited Meadowlark over the years for a wedding and GW plants classes and always enjoyed this delightful botanical garden all year round, so I’ve been looking forward to checking out their Winter Walk of Lights for my 1st time. At first glance and based on other reviews, the price appeared high so I jumped online to check out my holiday... More

From the Christmas Light Show to a simple afternoon in what passes for "wilderness" NVRPA-style in NOVA, this park is an absolute must!

The gardens are always a wonderful place to spend the day, especially in spring but all year round. It also has a first-rate party/wedding venue. And the Winter Walk Light display is fabulous. I love supporting, and enjoying, this local treasure.

Something for the whole family to enjoy. I'm a sucker for anything with Christmas lights but this was amazing

We visited the Meadowlark Christmas walk of lights last week with my family and we all had a fun night. Of all of the light shows and Christmas locations with decor they do meet their expectations in my view. I guess I can understand people that are at Disney or some other huge attraction that might be spoiled but for... More

The holiday light display was a fun family excursion after work. I thought the cost was slightly high for a walk around the park but it was fun. You can also buy marshmallows and roast over a fire at the end of the walk.
