The health and safety of the Boxerwood community is our highest priority.  We are closely monitoring the Corona virus (COVID-19) situation as it continues to unfold globally and locally.  

Boxerwood Garden

The garden is still open dawn to dusk. When you visit, please promote the well-being of all by abiding by the following:

  • Respect social distance: enjoy the woods as a family or solo, but avoid congregating as groups
  • Keep dogs on leashes and pack out waste
  • Leave no trace: take any trash with you since staff ability to do so is limited
  • Refrain from smoking or vaping on the property


Update July 15: We continue to keep the Boxerwood Garden open this summer for all to enjoy.  As Virginia moves through reopening phases, we request that visitors keep abiding by physical distance and “leave no trace” protocols.  These practices will help all people feel comfortable on our property and will help us maintain good stewardship of our environment.  To protect public health, the Play Trail and Lodge remain closed to the public.



The lodge will be closed to all except staff for the foreseeable future. Thank you for your understanding.


Until further notice, all programming is suspended in order to comply with the CDC’s advice of social distancing.


The Gala scheduled for March 20th has been rescheduled for this fall, however we realize that the pandemic is still unfolding.  The Boxerwood Gala task force will be meeting over the summer to determine how best to celebrate in a safe and responsible manner.  We will consider different options, including another reschedule, as we monitor the pandemic situation.  All tickets and tables purchased will be redeemable for a rescheduled event.  Stay tuned for more updates.
