Basic Directions to the three gardens on Sunday, April 28, Noon – 5 p.m.

Use your favorite mapping program or the general directions below. Watch for small directional signs near the gardens. All three gardens are in the area to the south of the City of Manassas and easily accessible from Dumfries Road/Route 234. Note special instructions for the Montgomery Garden in Lake Jackson. Start at any garden; they are listed in alphabetical order here and start with the southernmost garden.

Liga Garden: From Manassas, Take Rt. 234 Business/Dumfries Rd south and turn left onto Meadowgate Drive. Proceed .2 miles, then turn left onto Brookmead Drive. Continue .2 miles to a right turn onto Lynncrest Drive. Proceed .1 miles and turn left onto Dove Tree Court. House is on the right at 13081 Dove Tree Court. From Dumfries, drive north on Dumfries Rd/Rt. 234, turning right onto Brookmead Drive. Proceed as above.

Miles Garden: From Manassas, drive south on Dumfries Rd/Rt. 234. Turn left at the traffic signal onto Purcell Road at the 7-11. Proceed 1.3 miles, then turn left onto Kahns Road. Drive .9 miles, turning left onto Chestnut Meadow Court. 7308 Chestnut Meadow Court will be on the left. From Dumfries, drive north on Dumfries Rd/Rt. 234, turning right onto Purcell Road. Proceed as above.

Montgomery Garden: From Manassas, go south on Dumfries Rd./Rt. 234. Turn right onto Coles Drive (past Meadows Farms Nursery) and drive .2 miles. (Coles is a horseshoe so if you miss it you can take the second turn and follow directions from the south.) Just before the fire station, turn right onto McGrath Rd. and drive .4 miles. Turn left onto North Point Rd and go .2 miles. Turn left to enter Geller at the first sign, which is immediately after Cecil Road. It is a steep grade but doable even in a small car. At the bottom of the hill, turn right and park as close to the green house with purple shutters as you can. Garden is 8330 Geller. Each successive car should park behind the previous car in the middle of the road. Neighbors know not to use the road. When you are ready to leave, head out on Geller in the direction you are pointed. This is very important: do not approach from the opposite direction. As you leave, there is a significant dip in the road. To avoid scraping your undercarriage, stay to the LEFT side of the road. From Dumfries Rd/Rt 234 from the south, turn left at the traffic signal at Coles Dr. just after crossing the Occoquan River at Lake Jackson. Drive .2 miles and turn left onto McGrath Rd. Follow instructions above from McGrath.
