Renowned for its exceptional scenery and educational programs, Norfolk Botanical Garden is considered a premier example of horticultural excellence.

The Garden dates back to 1938 when the Works Progress Administration sponsored 200 African-American women to clear the dense, native vegetation and plant 4,000 Azaleas.

Today, the Garden represents 155-acres of colorful landscapes, unusual flowers, mature forests and seasonal plantings and features one of the largest collections of azaleas, camellias, roses and rhododendrons on the East Coast.

Open 365-days a year, the Garden is one of the only botanical gardens offering tours by foot, boat or tram.
