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.

We visited early September. While the gardens are nicely laid out and the two ladies at the desk were very helpful we were disappointed with the plantings. There were very few flowering plants so little colour. We saw more colour in civic planting in towns during our travels.

To anyone who enjoys gardens, I am going to flat out say, do the membership. You can go to lots of other gardens and will get your money's worth this way. This garden is beautiful. It is not the largest garden I have been to, but it is a refreshing change of pace for Fayetteville. There are lots of flowers,... More

They used to have a month where you could visit for free. They stopped that shortly after building their new building. It's not worth the 8 dollars per person, especially for a family of 5. Nice flowers in the spring but for the entrance fee, I'd rather put that money towards Zoo tickets or something else.

Attended a family wedding here, stayed at nearby Regency, so I got the oppurtunity to come back the next day and see more before leaving. Really nice
