You really can get lost in this 95 acre Eden in the heart of Vienna, VA. My son’s favorite part was the “Experimental Meadow,” which is a giant maze of overgrown grass. But that’s just the beginning. 
The Korean Bell Garden is the visual highlight of Meadowlark, with a gigantic two-toned bell set in a soaring enclosure.
Nearby the bell are stone statues that scare off evil spirits with their comical expressions, as well as a stone book comparing the English and Korean alphabets.
Behind the bell is a group of totems overlooking the garden.
Most interesting, though, is the beauty of nature and the changing seasons.
