This is a great little stop. We have two kids and Great Wolf Lodge wasn't quite open yet, so we popped over here, saw some weird plants, and headed back. It's free, so you don't feel bad about spending a little or a lot of time there. My 3 & 6 year old enjoyed it. It's not very big.

The parking was free, just sign the guest book (only maybe 5 parking spaces available for garden); however, the walk through was amazing. Very quiet, and beautifully kept rare plants. Just beautiful. Great place to walk and talk with someone you care about.

A saunter is what is expected if you attend this area with a plant lover such as myself. I felt like I could move 2 feet in any direction to see a plant I had never seen before, needless to say my group left me behind, I think I got lost in the variety. I loved the native plant section. The paw paw tree, North Americas largest fruit tree, and North Carolina native species, was especially captivating. This is a no Brainer for a good afternoon, bring your family, bring a date, fun to be had by anyone who appreciates nature.

I really love gardens. These were very nice and a peaceful place to take a stroll on the University grounds. Free parking is available if you register in the green house. Park in the lot that says it's for handicapped across from the science building. The spots are adjacent to the greenhouse.

Not as lush as it used to be due to discontinued use of irrigation system. But still worth the time. Trails in good condition. Greenhouses worth the time as well. Excellent staff always willing to answer questions
