  • Wife, daughter, and I were all blown away by this unbelievable collection of bonsai, as we were with all of the Natural Arboretum. Place this at the top of your D.C. travel list.  more »
  • Don’t overlook this place; I did before but never again! These gems of trees are breathtaking. It’s location is a little out of the way, get an Uber or cab. Old and young will enjoy. And it’s free,  more »

  • Well worth the visit for locals and tourists alike. Some of these trees, as well as the Literati rock art, are truly amazing. It’s the kind of stuff the you watch documentaries on and read books about, but if you find yourself in DC just stop here. Parking is ample and the walks are short. You can see all the “exhibits” in under an hour, and then if you have more time go on any of the trails for a longer more natury experience.
  • You definitely want to check this place out. It’s free to enter, parking is free. Very cool 👍🏼👍🏼😁 It’s unbelievable how old the trees are. I’ve never seen this many bonsai trees in one place. All of them were very cool, but seeing the really old ones were the coolest. Like 394 years old.
