The Botanical Gardens in Norfolk are located right next to the airport, but don't let that scare you. The gardens offer a peaceful getaway where you can look at a variety of beautiful flowers, trees, and other indigenous plants. There is a beautiful lake where you can sit under a tree and feed the many ducks that live there. The gardens also offer a boat ride, gift shop and plenty of open spaces for a picnic lunch. I am proud of our botanical gardens and think they are definitely one of Norfolk's natural treasures.
