Explore the Garden’s 155 diverse acres, an oasis nestled between diverse neighborhoods surrounded by stunning water views – the most beautiful location in Coastal Virginia. More than 75 years ago, a Works Progress Administration (WPA) group of more than 200 African American women and 20 men cleared dense vegetation and planted the first azaleas at NBG. They left a lasting legacy, a gift for all to enjoy.
