Time to Reopen!
Apr 2021 • Couples
The gardens “look” wonderful. But they are still closed, supposedly due to COVID19. These are outdoor GARDENS! I’ll gladly wear a mask and maintain physical distancing. Let the public in to enjoy the gardens! Please!

Went there last Monday April 12, 2021 and they were closed due to Covid. I have never been there before.and was really looking forward to visiting while I was having eye surgery at Duke. I am a registered landscape Architect and love visiting gardens. My wife and I are both fully vaccinated. This is an outdoor gardens why can't I go to the gardens???? I can go to any store, or even to Duke University but not an outdoor Gardens????? REALLY????

A walk in the park

Always pleasant to be here and be able to clear your head, look at the flora, notice the seasonal differences, and enjoy the calm.

Photographic Gardens

I love taking pictures there. I work about 20 min. away so I would go in the late afternoon after work and take pictures. On a Sat. morning I would go to get the dew drops and early morning light. My favorite place in the spring to get pictures. You can spend hours there looking for that picture and just taking time to sit and enjoy the quietness of it and think.

Wow

Visited 4 times during a four day visit to Durham. Loved the gardens. They reminded us of the Botanical Gardens in Singapore, where we lived for 7 years. The Asia section is fantastic and the wonderful lawn “bowl” was a magnet for families on two beautiful sunny spring afternoons.

Summer Day with family
Jul 2019 • Solo
Had never been here, and really is quite a lovely place with tons of various different flowers and plants to observe. There is even a koi pond with quite a many large species of fish. The place seems to be quite popular, as the overflow parking was what was left even at midmorning. This is certainly a nice place for photos. The caretakers have really done an exceptional job, and I would certainly return.

Stunning
Oct 2019
We visited these in Spring 2019 the day before we attended the Duke basketball game. I loved walking around the gardens. Everything is so beautiful. It was relaxing. People were walking, painting, laying around, playing in the open area, reading, talking, etc. The flowers are very pretty. There are several themed areas. There was a little farm area. There is over 5 miles of walkways/paths to walk. If I lived in this area I would visit often. I felt safe and felt super relaxed walking around. Visit the gift shop too! The staff we talked to were all friendly and helpful.

I love going to Sarah P. Duke Gardens for the opportunity to walk while taking in the gardens, there is always something in bloom or gorgeous to see. They have maps of the property, grab one and go. Take your lunch, a book or a sketch pad and get out to enjoy an afternoon.
