I went there on their holiday lights tour. Loved it. I need to go back during the daylight to see more. A hidden gem that locals should enjoy.

A walk in a garden with water features and yet natural in every way. The butterfly garden is unique and uses native plants

This is a lovely park off Beulah Road that I had not visited for a few years. There are numerous walking paths, ponds, benches and a Korean Bell Garden that was added since my last visit. They also had constructed a light show during the holidays to walk through- unfortunately, I missed it, but will check it out next year!... More

I had been to the park during the day a couple of times, so when I found out about the Christmas light show, I thought it would be nice to visit one year. It was a lovely event and my family enjoyed the effort the park went to, to create a very pretty event.

Take a walk for an hour or three! Plenty to see most any time of the year. Ponds, flowers, wild life or seasonal beauty. Many times they have art shows and local crafts exhibits to see as well. Cameras are recommended to capture the visit and the natural beauty. All this in a convenient close by Vienna setting. They do... More

The walking winter lights tour was fantastic - our first walking lights tour, ages 22 to 83, and we all loved it. Spent way more time than I expected, having 2 twenty-somethings along, but they were into it. Many moving lights with great optical illusion effects. Will definitely go again next year. I took movies to capture the action of... More

Meander through this very pretty place; bring a snack or lunch and sit and relax. Lovely site for weddings. Charge admission, so the value depends on how long you visit. Beautiful Winter Lights show.

Great place to take a break without traveling far. And its great all year round with the Holiday Lights event being the highlight of the winter season (much better when there is snow on the ground, but still enjoyable when there isn't). Even when its crowded, there is room to enjoy a bit of serenity in this oasis in suburbia.

If you are a Clark Griswold fan and if you dad taught you everything you know about outdoor illumination, then this is the place for you. I am not sure why I only found out about this place after living in the area for six years. To be outside walking around in January in the DC area is a gift... More

The lights at Christmas were beautiful. They also had hit chocolate and a fire to make s'mores. They have moving lights, sounds that help enhance the trip and the patch is clearly marked. I would highly suggest visiting!!!
