The Winkler Botanical Preserve

The city of Alexandria has a finite amount of open space. City parks often follow winding stream valleys, wetlands and occasionally the forested hilltop or adjoining slope. Many parks have a specific recreation function, while others feature winding trails and bike paths. Yet one of the largest tracts of natural forest in the city is entirely in private hands: the Winkler Botanical Preserve. In development for three decades, the preserve has become a remarkable open space on the western margin of the city. Essentially a stream valley hemmed in by office buildings and residential development, it’s a green treasure of native forest in an extensive but discreet naturalized landscape setting.
