Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

See the alluring outcome of Virginia’s summer showers at Meadowlark. The botanical gardens are home to the lushest flora of the season, including a butterfly garden of aromatic salvias and herbs. Take a guided tour with the Roving Naturalist Program to learn the ins and outs of Lagerstroemia indica and Hydrangea macrophylla, or just take some time to relax as you stroll through the Korean Bell Garden. For the ultimate scenic experience, consider renting a gazebo on Lake Caroline for a special late-summer event. –LW / nvrpa.org/park/meadowlark_botanical_gardens
