Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is located in Vienna, Virginia. Tucked back in a neighborhood off of Beulah Road, this park is a great place to take the kids or just to take a leisurely stroll. The visitor center is set up to offer education on conservation and plant diversity. The park has two ponds filled with koi fish and no shortage of turtles. If you are a bird lover there are plenty of different species flying around.
The main walking paths are perfect for strollers and wagons. Around the perimeter of the park are wooded hiking/equestrian trails. A small kids area offers a sandbox and a fun sitting area under a trestle. This area is conveniently located right next a pond so the kids can see turtles and large bull frogs.
We are definitely coming to this Fairfax County park again. The kids loved walking around looking at all the wildlife and pretty flowers. There was plenty of shade either on the paved trials or back on the hiking/equestrain trails. A picnic area is located outside the park near the parking lot since food is prohibited inside the park.
