Water Features at Glen Burnie

garden pondOne thing that makes the gardens of Glen Burnie so delightful is the series of water gardens. A natural spring on the property was diverted to form ponds and even a waterfall.

Designed by Julian Wood Glass, Jr., and R. Lee Taylor, the gardens were created in the second half of the 20th Century. Mr. Glass bequeathed this spectacular property to a foundation in order that it could be enjoyed by the public. Tickets are available at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.
