Thank you to the thoughtful supporters listed below whose generosity through the Fairfax County Park Foundation will help fund the Moon Gate Garden project at Green Spring Gardens.
Special appreciation is extended to Arlene Evans and Barry Dewberry (pictured) whose substantial support will result in a new feature at beautiful Green Spring Gardens. The lasting Moon Gate Garden will serve as a permanent commemoration of the site’s 50th anniversary in the form of stunning new architectural and horticultural features.
Moon gates originated in ancient Asian gardens. It is said that guests who passed through them were symbolically granted an auspicious welcome and good fortune. Future visitors to FCPA’s beautiful Green Spring Gardens are fortunate that our Signature Benefactors stepped up to personally underwrite the Moon Gate Garden stone structure and hardscape. Thank you, Arlene and Barry!
Memorialize Someone Special at the Moon Gate Garden
Green Spring Gardens is a gorgeous park to honor the life of a loved one, especially as part of the Moon Gate Garden.
Generous donor, Victor E. Schwartz, Esq. shared, "I am pleased to make a memorial contribution to honor my dear friend, Susan G. Akroyd, (1945-2021) a retired principal at Parklawn Elementary, a Title I school. It is fitting that Susan will be memorialized in the seating area of the future Moon Gate garden at beautiful Green Spring Gardens where we enjoyed conversations and many walks together."
Donors contributing $5,000 or more will be recognized on a lovely plaque to be installed within the Moon Gate Garden. Donate $50 or more to add your name or to honor someone special!
