Mary Livingston Ripley Garden
A quiet oasis located between the Arts and Industries Building and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden is a horticultural display of hundreds of varieties of annual and perennial plants, unique hanging baskets, and unusual trees and shrubs.
