Many things set up for children to participate in. We walked through the garden trail, which takes about 30 minutes, and enjoyed all the garden fairies on the trail.

The gardens were large, but rather lacking in diversity. It was fun for the kids, and it had lots of art on display. Overall: won’t go back.

This place is a must-see for everyone! Outdoors, there is a shaded path to walk along and view the various sculptures, as well as other extras (such as fairy houses). Indoors, there were several wonderful exhibits of artistic interpretations with "Sky" and "Vacation" themes, a...More

We stumbled across this hidden gem. A good educational and artsy place and play, weddings, pet walk with doggie bags & box along the footpath. Annmarie Gardens has lovely paths to stroll through the somewhat shaded woods with sculptures and information about art along the...More

Love this place. Come every year to see the fairy houses and play in the natural playground. There is also an art lab where kids can create their own art to take home.

I've lived in Calvert County since 1997 and finally made it to Annmarie Garden for the Green Expo. Parking was free and easy and the paths were nice to walk- especially the paved walkway amongst all the sculptures. The raised platform was my favorite- a...More

This is a small, quiet, walking garden. Prices are good, with various discounts. Free parking and a nice gift shop. There is art inside the building as well.

After a long drive, this was just what we needed. Small when compared to botanical gardens we have visited, but a well planned and refreshing nature walk. Enjoyed the sculptures and fairy villages.

Visited the Fairy and Gnome Festival which is primarily set up for kids, but it was a great walk around the park and neat to see all of the hard work by artists for this event. Was worth the $5 admission.
