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.
We met with family in NC. We were struggling finding a fun place that children would enjoy, being that some museums were closed on Thursday. Wing Haven turned out to be a hit for the whole group! Kids had a blast and fell from asleep when they got in the car! A win win!!!
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.
Omg, BEAUTIFUL garden with extra features tucked away. Leisurely stroll under a canopy of trees, nature everywhere--so relaxing! Well worth the trip!
Beautiful gardens. My kids enjoyed wandering through & playing in the S.E.E.D. Garden. We'll have to come back when more is in bloom but it was a morning well spent!
Beautiful gardens! Stopped here for a quick visit on the way out of town. Highlight of our trip to Charlotte! Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Thank you for this amazing experience!
