Built for the Community. Supported by the Community.

The Science Museum of Virginia is developing a 6-acre public park that will benefit people and wildlife alike. Free and open to all, The Green will incorporate more than 100 trees and other beneficial plants, meandering pathways, seating and gathering spaces and public art elements. Befitting the Science Museum’s mission and commitment to sustainable landscape development, this signature park will serve as a living laboratory for science-based solutions to urban challenges, as a peaceful gathering place and respite from the bustling community that surrounds us.

Contribute to this special project while honoring a friend, a colleague or a loved one through a tree, plant or bench dedication or by making a donation to the project. All gifts will contribute to the completion of the 6-acre park. Current dedication opportunities are reflected in the detailed plan for Phase 1, the 3-acre western tract now under construction. Detailed planning for the central court and eastern acreage will get underway in 2022.
