It is well kept, has a trail that runs alongside of the Cape Fear River, a pond, a place for concert and ceremonies like weddings and such, a general store, a farm house and a gift store. If you are in town is very well wothed to stroll there. There is an... More

Good place to walk and admire nature. It's the biggest botanical garden I've been. I imagine that it's better to go in spring when all the flowers are blooming.

We loved the Botanical Garden. I just recently moved to Fayetteville and this was one of our first outings. We will definitely be going back.

If you are gardener or just enjoy plants then this is for you. The trails run through all manner of trees, gardens, and overlooks. There were many blooming plants although a little earlier may have been better for flowers. This is a spread out place, so get ready to walk.

Walking through the gardens, you forget you are in a city setting, The arrangement of the gardens is well done. It is a beautiful spot of peace!

The family has been there dozens of times and always left satisfied. Our favorite has been the live musical events, inside and outside. Dancing with the kids was a treat. The educational events are well done and facilitate home school well. Fun to show up for a ad hoc picnic too.

Granted visiting a garden in the middle of August is not the best way to spend a hot, humid day, but we were limited. This garden has a lot of potential, but there is a communion between landscape architecture, landscape design, and creative gardeners that this garden fails to artfully achieve. At times I felt that the plant collection stole... More
