A beautiful place to spend a few hours walking under the pines and looking at the flowers. The staff was wonderful too. We were shocked to find this oasis in the middle of Fayetteville.

We visited a few days ago and it was so worth the time to get off I 95. The gardens are beautiful , my personal was the lily garden... just wow !! They were working on a sapling sculpture which was quite a treat to observe. We really loved it !

The gardens are well maintained and the gardens are just beautiful. The gardens also offer an original farm house and store for touring. The staff we encountered were wonderful.

Overall: Two people walking grounds early - later afternoon. Pros: Beautiful vegetation, artwork, and buildings. Quiet. Staff *SUPER* friendly. Restrooms very, very clean. Cons: Gift shop could perhaps have some hand painted shot glasses or maybe a little notebook or similar with attraction name (name could be imprinted) at a $10 or less price point. Nothing big, just something small... More

Every time I go to the botanical garden, I want to linger a bit longer. The facilities pull one in, the art work, gift shop, and mostly the gardens say "Stay a bit and breathe". Truly this us one of the best attractions and venues in Fayetteville.

The garden was naturally beautiful, but we were expecting more flowers. Maybe we visited at the wrong time and they either hadn't bloomed or were finished blooming for the season. Nevertheless, it was still beautiful seeing the creation God has given us to enjoy.

The Cape Fear Botanical Gardens has something for everyone! There are some historic buildings on site, bridge walkways, river and pond views, fountains, sculptures, etc... I enjoyed the woodland scent and took the longest route. Definitely plan to come for a couple hours. Even saw a turtle!

my husband and I were looking for a nice place to walk in the area and came across the botanical gardens. It was a little tricky to find since they were working on the main road that goes past it. Once there though we realized what a wonderful place this is! Beautiful flower gardens, a heritage garden , an old... More

I visited the CFBG last Saturday. The old general store and house were open to the public and are worth seeing. There were many flowers in bloom and the paths around the garden are nicely kept. It is a great place to spend a few hours smelling the roses!
