Overview
More
Morven Park was once the home of Virginia governor, Westmoreland Davis, and his wife Marguerite. More than 70 years after his death, the accomplishments and ideals of Gov. Davis still resonate within the 1,000 acres of this one-of-a-kind place. Each year 150,000 people visit the Park, whether participating in its competitive equestrian events, touring its three museums, attending educational and recreational programs, or just enjoying the beauty of the woodlands, mountainous ridge, historic buildings, and formal gardens. Summer tour hours for Morven Park's three museums are Thursday, Friday,Saturday, and Monday 12p.m.-5p.m. and Sunday 12p.m-5p.m. Starting September 1st, the museums will be open to the public Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 - 5:00, with the last tour starting at 4:00 pm. The historic gardens, Turkey Hill Farm, hiking trails, equestrian center and athletic complex are open every day. Operated by the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, Morven Park is a non-profit organization, relying on individual donations, memberships, and event income to finance its public programs and preservation of its historic and natural resources.

We did not have time to take the tour of the imposing mansion but we enjoyed a long walk around the grounds, admiring the well kept (though hardly extensive) gardens, and visiting the equestrian center. I was particularly impressed with the gorgeous trees all over...More

We came here on the last tour that occurred during the week, because during the school year it is closed and is open only for weekends. The small museum about the hunt, hounds & horses was pretty boring, but the mansion tour was very interesting....More

We didn't go inside because it was closed by the time we got there - but the kids loved walking up to it/ watching the fireflies and just walking around. It was definitely worth the visit.

We had a very nice time walking around the grounds of Morven Park and exploring the gardens. We got there before the mansion opened, so we didn't tour it, but there was plenty to see. The gardens were quite nice, and we loved seeing the...More

It amazes me how quiet and seemingly unused this park is for how special it is. Fantastic views and significant historical interest from the steps of the Old Governors Mansion...

Beautiful period mansion and grounds. We go to the VA Hound Show there every year. The grounds are kept beautifully, the house is magnificent. Lots of history there. Would be a fairytale to live there.

Nice public park for a walk, didn't get to go through the mansion because I got there too late although I did walk about the grounds. Nice bathroom facilities at the parking lot near the mansion.

We drove through this park and the mansion was beautiful. The grounds are quite wild and there was not a manicured garden that I saw.More

Yes! Morven Park is a very popular dog walking destination. Park policy asks that you keep your dog on leash at all times and that you pick-up and dispose of any waste. We hope you and your dog enjoy the Park! ~Morven Park... More
