  • I have taken my daughter here when she was a little girl and she absolutely adored being here. We have been here two or three times when she was little. She is now older and she still is amazingly delighted with the idea of going there again someday.
  • My favorite place to be! The Gardens are so peaceful and gorgeous at all times of the year. I have been a member for several years and will be for several more. I call the Gardens my outdoor studio and my clients love it too! The staff is wonderful and they work so hard to keep the Gardens so beautiful at all times of the year. You never know what to expect when you go! ~ Roxie B Photography
  • The botanical gardens in Fayetteville is beautiful! I love being outdoors and seeing all of the landscape and plant life. A real gem in our town.
  • Just officiated a wedding there for the first time. The staff was nice but pushy. Yes, the bridal party was late (wedding at 1pm, they arrived 12:40 and needed 30 minutes to get last minute details done), but they rented the Grand Hall from 7am to 7pm, so there was plenty of time!!! They had the outside set up for the ceremony with chairs, the archway and flowers. It rained but even as it slowed down, none of the staff cared to arrange chairs for the guest inside, or bring any of the flowers inside. There was a row of chairs for the parents, the guests had to either stand in the aisle and block the view for all others, or sit at the reception tables... I found this very sad and strange, I would've thought a facility like that, charging what they do, would've been capable of ensuring that things got set up inside as nicely as outside... I can not really recommend this facility, unless you have a strong wedding planner that can advocate well and get things done the way it should. In the end, I feel the CFBG should've done more, it's their facility, their reputation! Not impressed, certainly will not use it for my childrens' weddings!!!
  • Had a wonderful time with the family there. Excited to see they will be doing some local brew events. Would have liked a little more for wine / beer / refreshment options. Would have stayed longer if available.
