The gardens are well groomed and maintained , yet left in as much possible natural settings , choice of much of the flowers and shrubs used are native too the area. I find admission a little pricey , but understandable in order to maintain its Beauty

CFBG is a great place to unwind in the coastal plain/sandhill region of NC. Tons of variety and family friendly activities throughout the year.

My husband and I attended the holiday light show. Sometime maybe we will go back and see the garden by day. The walk-through light show was very impressive. Timed lights to music over a pond (a bit too loud), cool willow giant bird nest things lit with white lights, a lighted overhead arbor, and much more. Their historic buildings were... More
