Weekend visitors will enjoy the tunes of local musicians throughout the grounds, demonstrations by Neverland K-9 Institute, outdoor games: cornhole, can jam, chess, take the Barn Tour, see colonial farm equipment, and visit the award-winning Colonial Garden and Pollinator Garden at the Burnside Plantation.

At 148 acres of rolling hills and woodlands, Montgomery Hall Park is a great asset to Staunton. Once you’re on the looping miles of wooded hiking trails, you might actually forget that you’re within city limits. Hikers will often spot birds, squirrels, and deer. @Staunton
