Description
If you're looking for a unique Washington place to explore, why not bring Fido to visit the Smithsonian Gardens? It's a pawsitively awesome place to spend your day! You will find the Smithsonian Gardens are interspersed between the museums which make up the DC area known as the National Mall. Doggoes are welcome in all areas of the Smithsonian Gardens except the following locations: the Enid A. Haupf Garden and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. All other spots are fair game, but please be sure to keep Fido leashed at all times!

If wooftastically beautiful landscaping and gardens is your bag, you'll find the Smithsonian Gardens are a piece of paradise! To completely peruse the gardens at your leisure with Fido by your side will take a total of three hours. Check out the Pollinator Garden where pollinating insects flit between beautiful flowers selected just for them. The Kathrine Dulin Folger Rose Garden near Smithsonian Castle features annuals, perennials, herbs and tropical foliage throughout the year, but is especially special between May and November when the roses rule! For some history, stroll through the Victory Garden which features the types of vegetable gardens common during World War II, or go back to an even earlier time with the Native Landscape at the National Museum of the American Indian to see the land as it was before European immigration. 

The Smithsonian Gardens are also a pawsome place to enjoy a relaxing picnic lunch. You'll want to pack a basket from home with all the things you and Fido love including snacks, drinking water, and cleanup bags. To preserve the beauty of this doggone amazing park space, be sure to pick up after your doggo and to properly dispose of their waste in the provided trash receptacles. The park officials will thank you for your help, for sure!

For a day of relaxation and fun in a barking great DC park, why not visit the Smithsonian Gardens? You'll find it is a puptastic place for a day's getaway!
