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.

This is a hidden gem. Beautiful grounds. Well laid out. Very helpful staff. A tremendous variety of plants. Many water gardens. Peaceful trails to walk. A wonderful place to relax.

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

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
