“Beautiful!”

Being a family who love scenery and taking picture this was perfect. We love the Japanese influences! Beautiful big koi fishes a little Japanese style house and also an Alice in Wonderland inspired house.

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The arboretum was undergoing some construction work during our visit. However, that did not take away from the beauty and peaceful surroundings of the arboretum. This will be added as a must do whenever we are in the Wilmington area. If you are looking for a beautiful spot to walk around and enjoy - this is the place for you.

“Love the pond”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It's a great place to connect with nature and doesn't take very long. We especially enjoyed the koi in the pond. The layout makes it easy to get up close and there are so many to look at.

“Great place to learn about plants that grow in our region”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The arboretum does a great job with their display. The people who work/volunteer there are very helpful. If you enjoy learning about plants specific to the area, I highly recommend going here.
