If a botanical garden is on the map, then I'm going to visit it. Too bad that it was December! Even so we went to check it out. I was impressed by the main building which was beautiful architecture and high ceilings in the entry hall. We were also greeted with a nice reception desk and there were multiple doors... More

The gardens themselves would have gotten a 5 for the spring time, 4 for summer on. As mentioned not a lot of color later in the season, however the Christmas light display seemed to be greatly downsized this year. At a cost of 20 dollars for my husband and I to get in it was not worth it. Last year... More

I shoot at lot of Botanical Gardens for my business and this is one of the finest gardens that I have been to. The time of the year that I was there didn't yield a lot of blooms but it was one of the best that I have been to so far. If your there for the weekend check to... More

beautiful architecture and grounds. A nice surprise off the highway just outside the historic district of the city. Despite construction on the road in front of the gardens which might deter some, it is worth navigating to the entrance. the DOT should finish soon making the gardens more accessible. I usually attend the plant sales they have on the grounds... More

The gardens are maintained seasonally. Each season brings an enchanting change of blossoms and color. The central garden is regal enough for a wedding. Many happy couples have felt the magic !

Great little hidden gem in the local area. Beautiful water features and the plants, trees and flowers are incredible. Great Cape Fear river views along the walking paths! Don't hesitate to stop in. Is a beautiful attraction!

A beautiful expedience ~ loved the walking trails along the river, the amazing number of fascinating plants, the farm that took me back to childhood visits to my grandparents', and the super-friendly employees. I'll never forget the pure joy of my 11-year-old son and the hours he spent exploring ~ one of our best outings EVER!

Lovely fountains, paths and a lake and many many varieties of native and non-native plants make this a very special place. The Camellia collection is esp. notable and we hope to see that in season next year. Very pleasant staff and what a place to relax and enjoy a lovely afternoon.

We stopped here on our way out to Mt Airy; our annual Western NC Mountain Trip (in October). This was a nice break/rest stop. Easy to walk around the gardens. All/everything is beautiful. You will want to take your digital camera w/you (or phone?). NOTE: no food is served here but they can call in orders to be delivered. A... More

if you want a relaxing stroll in a green space, this is the place. Nice layout with well maintained walking trails. Many couples have their weddings here. Has reputation for being a safe area. As other reviewers noted, there is a severe lack of color from summer on.
