Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary
Located in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina, Wing Haven provides a natural oasis for reflection and study of its three public gardens. Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary is rich in Southern horticulture and a habitat for birds and wildlife.
Gardens are magical places; very peaceful and quiet with the exception of the beautiful sound coming from the birds & the wind moving through the leaves. In 1926 the Clarksons moved from Texas to Charlotte, they purchased a house with no trees, so they decided to make a garden and put food for the birds, and suddenly all kinds of species started visiting their place. It made me cry seeing the video of the couple who left a wonderful place to visit and spend time at. Their love for birds & all sorts of creatures still remains in that garden. Its a spectacular place to visit for both adults and children.
We held a baby shower at Wing Haven back in the spring. I'm late writing our review, but I just wanted to say what a lovely experience it was!! All of the staff were amazing in helping us plan from out of state! They gave us a tour the day prior to the baby shower because that was the day we were coming into town. The venue was perfect for an intimate baby shower worh family and friends! The gardens were lovely and we could not have asked for a better experience!
Omg, BEAUTIFUL garden with extra features tucked away. Leisurely stroll under a canopy of trees, nature everywhere--so relaxing! Well worth the trip!
My crew had am amazing time! They really really enjoyed themselves. Way more than I thought they would. It's an amazing experience.
