Reconnect With Nature at Green Spring Gardens

“Shady spots, garden center, ponds, well manicured lawns, shady walking paths, and so much more to explore in this place,” writes one TripAdvisor reviewer of Green Spring Gardens. “It is a great place to enjoy nature. Definitely worth visiting in different seasons throughout the year.” From summer sun to an autumn breeze, this is a spot you need to explore for yourself. 

As a change of seasons approaches, there’s no better time to head to Green Spring Gardens’ trails. With more than 28 acres to explore, there’s space to take in a breath of fresh air, feel the warmth of the sun, or watch the leaves begin to change in the weeks to come. Pull up the Fairfax County Trail Buddy, an interactive map, for an overview of the available paths both unpaved and paved. 

It’s worth noting, too, that the paved paths are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible. Whether you’re visiting the trails to help your favorite little ones learn about nature or simply for your own wellbeing, Green Springs Trails at Green Spring Gardens is one area that will not disappoint. Along the pond’s bank or carefully manicured gardens, the natural beauty here is something you won’t soon forget.
