  • You've never seen a more spectacular showing of azaleas in one small space until you've seen this garden!  more »
  • I didn't know this kind of azalea. Size, color... I was attracted to the charm of azaleas. From the middle of April to about a month, there is a feast of iron porridge. It was more than expected.

  • These gardens are worth a visit and there free. We're from Florida and won't be here to see the bloom but the current display of tulips and blooming trees are worth the trip.  more »

  • The gardens at WRAL are a beautiful part of the Raleigh area. Azaleas mostly bloom in the spring, so it is by far the best in the spring, near tax time (April 15). The State Farmers market and the NC State Arboretum are also close by, so be sure to check those out too! I think WRAL sharing their gardens with us is a huge community benefit provided by WRAL, and I am thankful to them!
  • Beautiful, beautiful garden! I'm taking prom and graduation pictures here. The flowers were so pretty, so was the grass and just the scenery in general. Loved it.
  • Truly spectacular for about 3 weeks a year usually centered around mid-April. Nice enough at other times but when the azaleas bloom, it's amazing.
  • Great place to take visitors to the area. Nice variety of labeled plants throughout the gardens. A few cheerful sculptures. Very nicely "formally" landscaped areas and some more naturalized. Benches throughout for resting or just taking in the scenery.
  • Well manicured but not quite yet in full bloom. Will definitely go again as the season gets further along.
