This arboretum is beautiful and worthy of a visit. Nicely maintained with a nice collection of plants. Definitely put this near the top of your list when in Raleigh.

The arboretum has a wide variety of plants. The layout is user friendly. It also has an indoor facility for plants.

A wonderful garden with many species of plants. The map at the entrance was helpful and needed for those without a good sense of direction. Anyone that likes flowers/gardening/beauty would appreciate this place.

Been a while since I've been to the Ralston Arboretum. The parking lot was full and now I understand why. Just a beautiful display of many flowers in a myriad of colors.

At this time of year with so many plants blooming the Arboretum is much more beautiful than the more famous Duke Gardens which I visited recently.

Good signage throughout the Gardens telling you the name of the plants and flowers. The Gardens are very well maintained.

The Arboretum is near the State Fairgrounds. This is definitely is a must see in Raleigh especially when the color is so beautiful.

We so enjoyed our 3 hour visit to these gardens. So many beautiful plants, trees and flowers. It was a delight to stroll through the different sections of the gardens. Very well maintained. Highly recommend this outstanding garden.

We had a morning to kill in Raleigh and this place worked out great for us.

Very enjoyable. Good hand-out map. Most species featured a small nearby plaque giving the name and information about them.

Relaxed an beautiful.

So much to see. Loved all the plants and the walkways. Very well maintained. I was commenting about a plant I had been looking for in Florida and one of the workers overheard me and educated me on the plant and that I would not find it in Florida. I was very impressed with his knowledge.

I had been wanting to go here for a few years & finally made it last week. I love the iris’s and peonies. I needed a place to take some pictures for my yoga website and this was the perfect place. Great for families friends solo, everyone! Beautiful well kept grounds

February - Saturday in Raleigh - not sure what to do - love the outdoors.. Just walked and submerged in the beautiful surroundings although most were brownish and battered by the cold weather. Definitely a place to go when you're in Raleigh. I am visualizing how charming this place will be come spring time! Guess I'll have to return to find out!
