We had our engagement photos taken here and fell in love with the gardens. Now we bring our children to visit the gardens and we find something new each time. Bring a picnic and sit out on the open lawns then explore all the nooks of the garden. Even being right next to NC State stadium the gardens are well protected and preserved but I would avoid the area if there is a game that day as the road leading into the garden tends to be very crowded and it can be hard to find a place to park.
