and make discoveries. This is a very enjoyable place to walk through and see the various types of gardens; Dry gardens, water gardens, sculpture, a marsh. Sometimes they have plants for sale and the staff is a great resource for gardeners.

I enjoyed going here with my sister and her son while I was visiting Raleigh. It was a nice way to be outdoors and take some nature photos, though I wish it hadn't been so humid. There were varied gardens labeled on a brochure and easy walking paths. Admission is free ;)

Lot of potential, but seems to be under constant state of construction and setup. Nice walking trails
