The Norfolk Botanical Gardens are located in Norfolk, Virginia. They cover about 155 acres. There are forty themed gardens scattered over the property. Some focus on a single plant (like roses). Others focus on plants from a specific region (like Japan).
One of the themed gardens, is the World of Wonders Children's Garden. This place is fabulous! It's three acres of fun for little ones. Kids can follow the world's Trade Route and find plants from different countries. They can also visit the dirt factory, which is a great place to dig and climb. And what kid doesn't like dirt? There's also a big treehouse where kids can learn about bugs and plant seeds. If you visit in the summer, be sure to bring a bathing suit. Kids can have fun splashing through the fountains and jet sprays.
The garden is open October through March from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM and in April through October from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Admission is $9.00 for adults and $7.00 for children.
