If you love to walk among gorgeous native flowers and native butterflies, spend a peaceful afternoon in Airlie Gardens. There is a unique history of the founders of this property and unusual buildings, such as the bottle cottage and a church still in use.

We went for a concert and it was a truly magical garden. Beautiful old oak trees and really good bathrooms quite the garden to see.

My niece had this on her list of things to see from Dawson's creek. The grounds are beautiful ! It was a nice relaxing afternoon.

The nearly one mile of walking trail was lovely. It would be absolutely amazing when the azaleas are in full splendor. There was a LARGE (200+) wedding tent set up which took away a few photo-ops away. Despite the tent, there were a bunch of nice flowers even at the end of the season.

I had an amazing time here. It's a beautiful place to walk, and just relax while enjoying the gardens and the birds and butterflies. Very peaceful! One of the most beautiful Pergola i've ever seen is here. The Oak tree is also very beautiful and big. I was actually very surprise with the size. The gardens are very well maintained, nice staff and easy to walk. A must see!!!
