The Macadam Winter Garden received a Spotlight Award from the Washington Recreation and Park Association in the category of “Best Park.” The ¾-acre park is comprised of a series of outdoor “rooms” interconnected with a gravel path and elevated boardwalk system. Each room has a distinct thematic character focused on plants with particular winter interest and characteristics - branching patterns, leaves, flowers, textures, fragrance, needles, and color. Elements of spring, summer, and fall are also present to provide a four-season strolling garden.
