We were here sevrl yrs ago during azalea time. It was SPECTACULAR. Many other trees, etc. were also in bloom, along w/very spcl. colored tulips. Even if you're from a big city (as we are; Denver's B.G. is *always* super) you'll enjoy this. Long path walks along Cape Fear River make this a "must" for hikers & walkers.

Spent a wonderful afternoon wandering - Quiet, relaxing, beautiful scenery. There are many paths to choose from and each takes you to something different. Currently there is no café, so be sure you have lunch prior to your visit. There are cold beverages and there was a "burger" truck in the parking lot. We found the staff very helpful and... More

Only downside is you have to use the catering they provide . And they are not much help when it Come to coordinating your event. Very unorganized

When we have family and friends come into town during the spring we always take them here. Great place to relax and take a stroll. Not to mention all the events! Who doesn't like listening to a band with surroundings that just welcome you. The gift shop is just ok but we never go there for it anyway. They also... More

This is a beautiful area, just for a stroll, to having parties and weddings. The indoor outdoor areas are perfect for gatherings. Happy to have this facility in our backyard.

All I can say is WOW! I've visited many botanical gardens over the past years, and this one is one of the tops. It's very well laid out, a relaxing walk, nicely manicured, not over done but very tastefully designed. My husband and I enjoyed our stroll through the 78 acre garden. There was one section we could not go... More

I went with a playgroup, and while I personally liked the gardens, my two toddlers were constantly having to be pulled back. The water areas do not have any rails, but are adjacent to the sand pits. I would love to go back with my husband, but it was SO MUCH work to have my kids play there.

On our family road trip down to Florida, we stopped to have lunch and a car-break in Fayetteville. We came across the Botanical Garden and we were not disappointed. With my 3 kids under 7 and my mom, we strolled around the gardens and enjoyed such natural beauty. The entry fee was very reasonable, even more so when you belong... More

The Botanical Gardens are located in a quite spot just outside downtown Fayetteville. We were surprised that they were so vast and you couldn't hear any traffic. It was bigger than we expected and very beautiful. There were lots of walking paths and places to stop and look and see the river. There were walkways, but they were not paved,... More

This is an excellent place to spend a nice afternoon. The wide varieties of plants as well as the small village they have there makes for a very nice day to get out of the house and away from the TV.
