The Garden Club of Fairfax is featuring the town of Reston for the first time in its 90 year history during Historic Garden Week beginning April 22nd, 2017. As the first nationally planned community and dream of visionary Robert E. Simon, Reston will be one of thirty statewide tours being held this week. This tour is captained by The Garden Club of Virginia and features nearly 200 of Virginia's most picturesque gardens and private homes. Historic Garden Week is the only statewide home and garden tour in the United States touted as "America's Largest Open House", with nearly 30,000 visitors from around the world and an economic impact of $425 million since its inception. The proceeds from this celebrated event have raised funds for nearly fifty restoration and preservation projects throughout Virginia. Iconic landmarks such as Mount Vernon, the Pavilion Gardens at the University of Virginia and the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library have been restored to their original splendor due to the hard work of thousands of volunteers, and the generosity of countless home and garden owners.

On April 25, 2017, many volunteers will greet close to 1,000 visitors to this uniquely multifaceted town of Reston. Three distinctively styled lakeside homes, one stately traditional home with a backyard garden oasis, and a magnificent garden will capture the essence of Robert Simon's view on living in harmony with nature where you can "live, work and play."
