What's Happening at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in February

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden February
Life  is a little more special thanks to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. This multi-award-winning facility is packed with exhibits, events, and activities that no two visits are ever the same. Our real estate agents share details about the must-see attractions at Lewis Ginter along with can't-miss events on February's calendar.

About the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

The Garden's namesake was a Richmond businessman and philanthropist who in 1895 purchased nine acres of what had once been Powhatan Indian hunting grounds. Ginter's niece, Grace Arents, bequeathed the land to Richmond, stipulating that it be used for a botanical garden to honor her uncle. 

What to Do and See at Lewis Ginter

The centerpiece of Lewis Ginter's 50-acre property is a 63-foot classical domed Conservatory, which is unique in the mid-Atlantic region. Visitors can explore 15 themed gardens including Asian Valley, Cherry Tree Walk, and Children's Garden, featuring the popular CWDKids Tree House.

Enjoy a snack or light meal of seasonally driven soups, salads, and sandwiches at the Garden Café. Before you leave, stop in at the Garden Shop to pick up gifts or treat yourself to a memento of your visit. Both the café and shop are accessible without Garden admission.

February is a great time to plan an outing to Lewis Ginter. Admission is half-price through the end of the month. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 3 to 12. Hours are 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily.
