Ive loved the gardens since I was a student many moons ago. The murals on the ground are in need of some repair but otherwise the gardens are well maintained. Such a nice tranquil spot on a bustling campus. I used to meditate here between shifts at both of my jobs I worked while in school.

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

Delightful tour by April and the team of researchers and staff. Very efficient displays in the Greenhouses and creative use of the topography in the Arboretum. April shared her knowledge of the history and the plant life with enthusiasm that made it a hit for our community Landscaping Club members. We'll be back! Charlotte is fortunate to be home of this resource, the staff and the researchers.

Amazing free botanical garden. Beautifully maintained and very educational. One suggestion i would make is please have clear signs for botanical garden parking.
