Nice public park for a walk, didn't get to go through the mansion because I got there too late although I did walk about the grounds. Nice bathroom facilities at the parking lot near the mansion.

We really enjoyed our visit and tour of the building. When we first entered and waited for the tour, there's a few rooms to visit, focused on foxhunting. Once the tour started, we seemed to visit about every square foot of the house. The tour...More

We had a quick visit here on our way through Virginia and took some beautiful photos of the lovely house and gardens. We didn't pay to go inside the house so I couldn't comment on that.

If you like history and places like Mount Vernon, you will love Morven Park! Steeped in history, beautifully restored/maintained and lovely surrounding countryside! And if you get lucky there will be an equestrian event going on next door!

Yes there's plenty of picnic tables, and benches. After you enter go to the left and you will see a large parking lot. There's tables there. Enjoy!

While enjoying the Park's gardens and grounds, you will find restrooms in the Comfort Station at the end of the main parking lot AND in the Coach House complex (water fountain there as well).

Yes! Morven Park is a very popular dog walking destination. Park policy asks that you keep your dog on leash at all times and that you pick-up and dispose of any waste. We hope you and your dog enjoy the Park! ~Morven Park... More
