If you think magical gardens appear only in storybooks and on movie screens, then you have not spent time at Annmarie Garden.
An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, Annmarie Garden is located in scenic Solomons on the Chesapeake Bay. The sculpture garden features a walking path that meanders through the forest, past sculptures that include more than 30 works on loan from the Smithsonian Institution and the National Gallery of Art, tree pops, and beautiful flora and fauna.
Annmarie Garden also presents a variety of award-winning annual events, outdoor and indoor exhibits, the Maker’s Market, daily art activities in the artLAB, art classes, and exploration opportunities.
This family-friendly Garden and Arts Center is located off Route 2-4, on Dowell Road and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; the Arts Building and Gift Shop are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Plan a picnic, ride your bike, meander, explore, and simply be at Annmarie. For more information, visit www.annmariegarden.org or call 410-326-4640.
