North Carolina Botanical Garden Reviews
The trails are amazing and usually not very crowded at all. They’ve been doing lots of maintenance and there are new benches in the woods for good quiet time more »
There are hammocks in the children’s garden for parents to rest. Also, the forests behind the gardens have nice walking paths and a river bed to explore. more »
Fun beautiful place. Nice hiking trails and you can play in the river. Cool gardens too. Interesting meaningful experience. Completely free (except for the gift shop of course). The gift shop is fun to look around in even if you don't want to buy anything. The giant chess set is really fun. Very family friendly.
It's a beautiful and relaxing place. You could go with your family to observe the nature and hear the birds singing. Great service. It's free. And it has free parking. Has a great shop with plants, book, coffee y many other thing.
