I really enjoyed our time at the gardens, the new stickwork addition is pretty awesome. I would suggest a visit.

This is a gorgeous place. Perfect way to spend a hot North Carolina Day. Check out the old Cape Fear Style cottage and try to go when the azaleas are in bloom.

The main building is nice. The ground was ok not great. No happy to see a snake so close to the walking path.

Although it may cost $10, it's worth it. This Botanical Gardens has an extremely large grounds and if you take your time walking around it will keep you busy for half a day. There are so many little secret areas to explore. An excellent place to go with a date. The gift shop is a nice, air conditioned, spot to... More

A beautiful place to spend a few hours walking under the pines and looking at the flowers. The staff was wonderful too. We were shocked to find this oasis in the middle of Fayetteville.

The gardens are well maintained and the gardens are just beautiful. The gardens also offer an original farm house and store for touring. The staff we encountered were wonderful.

Overall: Two people walking grounds early - later afternoon. Pros: Beautiful vegetation, artwork, and buildings. Quiet. Staff *SUPER* friendly. Restrooms very, very clean. Cons: Gift shop could perhaps have some hand painted shot glasses or maybe a little notebook or similar with attraction name (name could be imprinted) at a $10 or less price point. Nothing big, just something small... More

Every time I go to the botanical garden, I want to linger a bit longer. The facilities pull one in, the art work, gift shop, and mostly the gardens say "Stay a bit and breathe". Truly this us one of the best attractions and venues in Fayetteville.
