Carlyle House Historic Park

The Gardens

garden at carlyle

The Carlyle House garden offers a 3/4 acre open green space in the center of Old Town Alexandria for lunch or quiet solitude. Designed in the 18th-century style, the garden features carefully researched plant materials which would have been available to John Carlyle during his occupancy. Brick walks, benches, boxwood parterres, and a lovely cutting garden make the Carlyle House garden a charming respite from the town’s hustle and bustle.
