  • It is a small garden but with a variety of spaces that give your plenty to do and wander through whether you have 40 minutes or a couple of hours. Particularly impressed with the children’s garden!

  • This garden is a gem! Lovingly taken care of and so creative! Not to be missed: the Reading Railroad sculpture, a seating area in the shape of train cars, to be used for the little ones who visit...

  • Next to Lake Fayetteville with easy access to the trails. If you’re not a member the entry price can feel a bit high. The garden isn’t that big but has several nice areas to sit, picking or admire the plants. They also organize several events with free access to everyone. If you’re in the area check it out.
  • I have attended a beautiful wedding here, and got to go back with my son's school for a field trip. The volunteers were very knowledgeable about the flowers, plants, trees, and various butterflies we spotted along the way. I have heard they have a great summer program for children with storytime.
