It has many pleasures but not as many quiet ones as it used to. Part of the grounds have been ceded to the airport. Still there is an amazing collection of azaleas and roses and an okay boat trip. There are plenty of trails the wind around lakes and through the pines.

Worth a visit any season. Make sure you take the tram for an overview of the entire garden. The boat ride lets you see the garden from a different perspective. The rose garden is beautiful in late spring to early summer. The wildflower/butterfly area is great in summer. Children will love there special area with water features. Wear your walking shoes it is the only way to really get up close.

The Norfolk B-Garden is an impressive facility. Their Azaleas are impressive, as is their information center. You could easily spend 3 hours here in the summer, 5 in the spring and fall, and 2 in the winter. They have food on the premises and are minutes away from ORF. If you have a long layover, this is the place to spend it.
