Went there last summer for my birthday.....what a beautiful place. The gardens were in full bloom, with the scent of fresh flowers everywhere, and the ponds were so relaxing. Would love to visit for all seasons.

A place of peace in the middle of town. I grew up nearby. Mrs. Clarkson always let us go back and play hide and go seek!! Now, it is simply a place where one can find peace. My son proposed to his wife here!

We went to a baby shower here and it's a very very small place, the size of an average city house and backyard. The facility worked well for a small garden party but I don't imagine it holding the attention of anyone but an avid gardener for more than 30 minutes.

Very nice little garden in Charlotte. Well maintained. Free for members and kids and a small fee for nonmembers. It has different kinds pf plants (and a flower garden, which is probably better to see in spring/early summer). The front desk said they have over 130 verity of birds but depending on season and time of day you might see... More

Thankfully people in generations past created a preserve which gets one in touch with birds, nature, and flora. If you want an hour of stillness surrounded by beauty, find your way to Wing Haven.

IF you like birds, this is the place. Symphony of the songs of the birds will surrounds you and you will feel like you are in haven. Bring birds food. and you could enjoy your visit even more.
