Winkler Botanical Preserve

Alexandria, VA - Park

Winkler Botanical Preserve is private botanical preserve right next to the Mark Center in Alexandria is such a hidden gem that I have driven past it for 11 years! So many fun surprises in the 44 acres including a giant lodge, small waterfall, beautiful flowers and wood carved everything. You can tell this is a place of love and care. My kids said it was “soooo amazing!” 400 Roanoke Ave, Alexandria, VA (8 miles from DC, don’t use Waze. Google Maps will take you here.) 2 Important Notes: Open 8:30 - 4 PM daily and gates will be LOCKED at 4pm and NO restroom. Not wheelchair friendly. Some paths could be ok for stroller but to get to the bridge and little cabin you have to cross the stone path.
