Green Spring Gardens

Inspiration, Information for Gardeners

Green Spring Gardens is a must-visit park, a year-round gold mine of information and inspiration for the home gardener. It's an outdoor classroom, a museum, and a national historic site.
The park has a wooded stream valley with ponds, a naturalistic native plant garden, more than 20 thematic demonstration gardens, a greenhouse, a plant shop, two gift shops, a historic house, and a horticultural reference library. The gardens and educational programs focus on practical landscaping techniques that are appropriate for the Washington metro area.
Park grounds are open from dawn to dusk.

ADA AccessADA Renovations: Effective October 9, 2017, the Park Authority will begin renovating many of Green Spring Gardens pedestrian routes for ADA compliance purposes. Work is expected to be completed by spring 2018. This work will result in the temporary closure of select routes to the park’s features while alternative routes will be provided. Thank you for your patience. For questions or comments, contact the ADA Coordinator: gary.logue@fairfaxcounty.gov, 703-324-8727, TTY: 711 VA Relay
