There are many areas to hike and explore. If you are visiting northern Virginia must visit. My favorite is Korean Bell garden. So peaceful.

Absolutely beautiful experience, calm and serene gardens, with many different trails to view. We enjoyed it and hope to be back again.

I'm sorry we didn't visit sooner. The grounds are immaculate and the price of admission ($5 non-senior rate) is a great value. The cherry trees are on the way out, the bulbs are in varying stages of bloom and many other flowers are just coming along. If you haven't visited and are thinking of doing so with someone who has a physically disability, the grounds are hilly. The visitor center is at the top and you have to walk down the hills to the flowers, trees, lakes, gardens, etc. There are even 2 routes for wheelchair users, one less steep and one not recommended for that. My party thought either route would be challenging. It's something to know, not to stop you, but just know ahead of time.

Now that we know this place is here, we hope to visit in some other seasons as well.

The Cherry Blossoms here are very nice here and is not as crowded as at the Tidal Pool in DC..
Although the blossoms in DC are worth visiting if you have never been...at least here you can walk leisurely and enjoy the beauty. Although there was quite a crowd enjoying the gardens this past Saturday, it was still quite enjoyable. I hope to make it back through the various blooming seasons. I only wish they would open earlier!

Nestled in a neighborhood is this hidden gem. We went to check out their cherry blossoms around their small pond. Nice to see the variety of foliage, and children able to play without parents having to worry about crowds.

They have a small fairy garden which makes you think about what to do with you own garden.

Only $5 to get in- worth it.
