Earth Day Is April 22: Here’s Where To See Blooms In Bethesda

Category: Uncategorized

One of our favorite parts of Bethesda is despite it being an area full of shops, restaurants and more, it’s still remarkably green – and the perfect place to celebrate Earth Day without venturing too far from home. On Earth Day on April 22, you can do just that by checking out Bethesda area gardens. 

These local gardens are full of everything from roses to fountains to greenery to wildflowers. Visit under the city sunshine for a taste of Earth Day and to get your fill of some of the most beautiful flowers in the area!

McCrillis Gardens, located at 6910 Greentree Rd, Bethesda which is 10 minutes from your Elm apartment, is a naturalistic garden, offering shady woodland walks and splashes of color, especially in spring. Tucked into a residential neighborhood, the five-acre property was donated in 1978 by William and Virginia McCrillis. 

The gardens feature paths that wind through the remarkable collection of ornamental trees and shrubs, along with bulbs, groundcovers and shade-loving perennials that add year-round color and texture. A pavilion and benches provide restful vantage points.

Brookside Gardens, located at 1800 Glenallan Ave, Wheaton which is 18 minutes from your Elm apartment, is an award-winning 50-acre public display garden that includes an aquatic garden, azalea garden, butterfly garden, children’s garden, rose garden, Japanese style garden and more. 

Brookside Gardens also features two conservatories for year-round enjoyment. Admission to the gardens is free. All pedestrians should enter the gardens through the pedestrian entrances on Glenallan Avenue, on the left of the vehicle entrance, or the conservatory pedestrian entrance, to the right of the vehicle entrance.
