“Beautiful backdrop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I came by for a conference meeting, but was really wowed by the atmosphere. The mansion was gorgeous and decorated in such lovely, historic way. I drove back the next day to show my mother and we found that a wedding was taking place out front. With the trees in bloom for springtime, what a lovely place to celebrate an outdoor event. The staff was quite friendly and hospitable to our group. I only wish I had more time to explore the inside of the mansion!

“Pretty mansion...in our neighborhood. I've been there many,many times.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's very well maintained, beautiful grounds; easy free parking; sledding on the grounds when it snows in the winter. My brother and sister-in-law had their wedding reception there and it was charming!

“The perfect lazy sunday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

A couple of friends and me drove to this park on a Sunday evening.. there were hardly any people; it was so peaceful.. We did a bit of running around, a small hike (there are some tiny streams around), spotted a couple of deer and just chilled out.. The place makes for lovely snaps too!

Do not forget to carry a frisbee or a ball.. there is ample space for any sport! And you have to load up on snacks, there aren't any food options available.

“All the arts, indoors and out; many activities in one beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

The beautifully restored Glenview Mansion has art exhibits, a recital room, and is rented for weddings. The F. Scott Fitzgerald Theater is home to Victorian Lyric Opera (Gilbert & Sullivan and more), Rockville Musical Theater, Rockville Concert Band, and much more. The spacious grounds have outdoor concerts and children's events in the summer. There's a playground, climbing wall, sculpture, and nature center. It's a neighborhood gem for people in or near Rockville, Maryland.
