This garden is small but worth the short visit especially since there is no admission charge. At the time wee were there, they were getting ready for a plant sale. It is right around the corner from Airlie Gardens.

Enjoyed being able to walk around and let the kids explore for a bit. Even in winter there were many things to see and paths to wander. Not somewhere you could spend hours, but definitely an hour.

My niece suggestions we visit the arboretum during our recent stay. Despite it being a cold winter's day, we thoroughly enjoyed our walk through it. The veggie garden, Japanese garden, and the children's area were highlights. Will come back to visit it now every time we come to Wilmington.

The gardens are beautiful, there is a gift shop and a Plant Clinic where Master Gardeners will help you with any gardening problems that you may be experiencing. Well worth a visit. The kids will love it too.
