I happened to visit these gardens early in April during unseasonably cold and windy weather. There were a few things blooming, but most of the more lush greenery hadn't leafed-out yet. No matter, it was nice to walk around and it's a peaceful place. Recommended.

Beautiful botanical garden in the midst of Alexandria. You will enjoy the walking trails throughout the garden, and the beautiful and well kept flowers and trees. Plenty of parking around the perimeter, this is a must do in Alexandria and it's free!!

No entrance fee for the garden. I did not visit the house, but there is good info about it on the Fairfax County parks website. I don't believe that there is an entrance fee for the house.
