I am new to the area and just getting my feet wet at all the local hot spots. I was looking for peaceful and the CFBG definitely delivered. Who knew that besides the "typical" large pond, water fountain, seasonal flora, and superb landscaping, they also have a section of historical buildings and gardens! And with over 3 miles of trails,... More

Took my family in July; I'd recommend waiting until the fall or spring because it was scorching out there. The bugs were in full force but there was some pretty scenery and nice places to take pictures and look at. There's a lot of walking so have some comfy shoes on. Was there about 2 1/2 hours total. It's something... More

A great place to spend a day. Great displays and plants are labeled. 3-4 times a year they have sales and are a great opportunity to get flowers and plants. You can walk at your own pace. Kids will love it here.

great trails and native fauna and flora. Good gift shop and central building. Hours are a bit odd and can be hard to get to off business 95 right by the Cape Fear River

This is worth a stop for some conversation and to see God's creation. They have done a great job planting and developing the landscape. We really enjoyed it. We have had some a weird interactions with staff and tried to contact them about the issues, but with no response, otherwise they would have a fifth star.

Not only is this a beautiful garden to walk around and visit, but it is a lovely place to hold events. Every season offers something new to see. My favorite time may be at Christmas with all the lights throughout the gardens. A real treasure right off I-95. A great reason to stop in Fayetteville.

This is a lovely place to visit. There are special garden areas to learn about the flowers. It is an excellent place for meetings, family, and class tours.

The Cape Fear Botanical Garden is a beautiful property. It's great way to enjoy the outdoors. The property is well maintained, it's just plain gorgeous. The pathway take from gardens, exhibits, and views. Be ready to walk it's pretty big for a botanical garden. The facilities can be used for receptions or conventions. They also cater to wedding events. This... More

The Cape Fear Botanical Garden was planned out very nicely, the quality of construction and decor of the building /facilities are some of the nicest in Cumberland and surrounding/adjacent counties; i really enjoy going to the Homestead and Country Store and sharing time with the volunteers who know the history of the buildings and the families who owned the buildings...
