  • This is a lovely place to visit or to use as a venue for an event. It is a perfect place for a wedding or a conference. It is adaptable and can handle groups of all sizes. 
  • The gardens are very pretty and well maintained. There are areas all around with sculptures that make for fun photo opportunities. It is not a huge garden, you can walk around and see it all in a few ...  more »

  • With only two months to plan our small wedding, finding a venue on such short notice presented a challenge. We were able to find exactly what we needed at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden. Not only was the site beautiful and magical in itself, but the event staff (Marissa and Lauren in particular) were extremely patient, tentative, and informative as we scrambled to make plans for the big day. Marissa walked the journey with us step-by-step up until and including our wedding day. She was extremely flexible and helpful throughout the entire decision-making process. Her composure and flexibility during the rain we encountered that day were truly admirable. She helped us and our guests to remain calm and relaxed, and the rain only made the day that much more beautiful. What a blast! We are happy to have chosen such a beautiful place to celebrate our union, and we were quite lucky to have been able to work with such amazing people!
  • The botanical garden is amazing. Its cheap to go in and they offer senior and military discount. The place is beautiful and huge, a wonderful place to go spend your day in. It's definitely a place I'll visit again.
  • It's beautiful! A great place for adults and children to relax and learn.
  • Attend a wedding here. The outdoor setting was beautiful for the ceremony and the indoor reception was festive and VERY well staffed. The food was excellent and the wait staff were respectful and discreet.
  • Beautiful gardens, arrived on an incredibly hot day. Farmhouse and country store were not open, would have made the trip awesome. On the plus side, tried scupper nutters.
