Wonderful Japanese garden, and if you have little ones, don't miss the splash ground in the children's garden. Great secret summer cool down spot!
Beautiful in the spring, Christmas display, Oriental Tea House.
Check out the LightFest! Great fun for all :)

The Grace Arents Garden, a victorian-style garden, was restored based on its original early-1900s design by the Garden Club of Virginia.
The garden's 40 acres include one of the largest and most diverse perennial gardens on the East Coast and the only classical, domed conservatory open to the public in the mid-Atlantic region.
Be sure to check for tree frogs in the rough horsetail (Equisetum hyemale) in the Children’s Garden.
Beautiful assortment of rare plants and flowers.
A historic property with 40 acres of spectacular gardens, Lewis Ginter is home to a classic domed Conservatory, the only one of its kind in the mid-Atlantic, housing more than 200 orchids.
July 4th is traditionally a free day for families, but don't think you're getting near the water area in the kids' garden. Pay admission and have your own space another day.
The membership is a great deal with reciprocity with lots of other gardens around the country.
There is no wrong time of year for a visit! During Garden fest go to Espresso A Go Go for coffee treats in the back by the children's garden.
I wouldn't come just for the Water Play. Best suited for kids 4 and under. Smaller than Midlo Y water spouts.
Pre-game cause beer is $5 and if your pale vbring an umbrella; it's a scorcher.
Love the Christmas Display. Great items in the gift shop anytime of the year!
Hit the orchid room in the conservatory.
Festival of Lights during the holiday season is highly recommended and excellent for photos.
Many cool plants and very scenic. Love to take photos there.
Go to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and view the Conservatory from the tree house in the Children's Garden. Don't forget to look for tree frogs in the horsetail, and climb the 100-year-old mulberry tr
