Gardens & Grounds

Morven Park Gardens & Grounds are open from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily and are free to visit.

The Mansion and Museum schedule varies, please click on the button below for more information.

Morven Park encompasses 1,000 acres of lawns, fields, wooded ridge, and formal boxwood gardens.  Over half of the property has been placed in conservation easement to preserve the open space for future generations. 

The expansive mansion lawn and verdant rolling fields are remnants of Morven Park’s 19th century landscape.  Today the pastures are dotted by creatively designed equestrian cross-country jumps.  Marguerite Davis, the last owner of Morven Park, installed the formal Colonial Revival boxwood gardens in 1930.  Her magnificent boxwoods stand today, and we invite you to stroll Morven Park’s restful gardens and landscapes seven days a week.

NOTICE TO VISITORS: Dogs are always welcome at Morven Park, but we strictly enforce leash laws. Please do not allow your dog to run free anywhere on Morven Park's property. Dogs must be on a leash at all times and we ask that you clean up after your pet while on Park grounds.

When you visit, you thereby irrevocably grant Morven Park, the photographer (his/her affiliates), licensees, agents and assigns, the unrestricted right to use your likeness (or the likeness of any minor in your care) in photographs and video, and to distribute such photographs and video for editorial, trade, advertising or other purposes in any manner or medium, whether now or hereafter devised, throughout the world in perpetuity.
