Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is an ideal escape from the center of Richmond. The gardens cover 50 acres and were opened to the public in 1984. The dazzling domed conservatory is thought to be the only one in the mid-Atlantic region.

The gardens feature several beautiful walking routes, including the Asian Valley and the Cherry Tree Walk. The Morton Native Plant Garden displays some of Virginia’s native, drought-tolerant species, such as sourwood trees.
