The Botanical Gardens is one of my top 5 favorite places on UNC Charlotte's campus (and UNCC is a pretty large university!). It's perfect for studying, reading, hanging out with friends, or getting away when you're stressed. They have a wide variety of gorgeous plants...More

Nice little garden. I had the whole place to myself for the hour or so that I was there. The best part is that it is free, but they do have a box for donations.

We visited on a lovely but breezy day in October; as it was Fall, the gardens themselves of course were not in high season, but they are still beautiful. The design sight lines here have all been SO carefully thought out that they are just...More

Great place to study natives! Most large specimens are labeled but hoping in time more herbaceous plant material will be identified. We particularly enjoyed all the bridges and surprises along the trail and the vistas it provided.
