Grin & Grow Learning Garden

Grin and Grow Garden Bench

The Grin & Grow Learning Garden is designed for visitors of all ages.  In the shape of a smiling face, each section of the garden contains plants related by theme.  The Garden was created and has been maintained since 2002 by the VCE Newport News Master Gardeners. 

Enjoy a variety of experiences in the Touch and Smell Garden, discover the beauty of Native grasses, watch pollinators at work, look for surprises in the Rock Garden, investigate a sampling of small evergreens for the home landscape, and delight in the wildlife found in the trees.  There’s even a poodle inspired shrub!  With changes occurring daily, you’ll want to visit often. 

The Grin & Grow Learning Garden is located in the Riverview Farm Park, adjacent to the playground, at the intersection of Menchville Road and Riverview Parkway. From Menchville, turn onto Riverview Parkway and follow signs to the playground.
