Beautiful botanical garden in the midst of Alexandria. You will enjoy the walking trails throughout the garden, and the beautiful and well kept flowers and trees. Plenty of parking around the perimeter, this is a must do in Alexandria and it's free!!

My mother in law is a botanist and when she visits we would take her here. She loved strolling among the native plants and we loved the gift shop. My kids loved running around and exploring.
