Open from April 1-May 15 every year, this beautiful park in the city of Richmond houses a 17 acre azalea garden with a 1.0 mile loop road/walk encircling the gardens.

A short distance from downtown Richmond, this park contains over 450,000 azalea plants in 76 different beds that are usually in peak bloom around mid-April every year. When the plants are in full bloom, you can drive (or walk) the 1 mile loop and there are various places to park and get out and walk along the way.  If the gates to the road are closed, simply park at the soccer fields parking lot and walk the road. 

Dogs are not allowed within the gardens themselves but are allowed on the road that circles the gardens.
