  • Beautiful area with a large koi pond, Japanese garden, lovely rose garden and interesting sculptures. We often take the kids there for a picnic and a way to escape the hustle and bustle. You can feed ...  more »
  • An arboretum like this should be in every town. Gardens are open from dawn to dusk and other buildings/offices are open from 10-5. This is a beautiful and well-cared series of gardens.  more »

  • Nice place to visit. The trees and flowers are amazing. If you like gardens you will love this place. Everything is labeled which is great if your planning a garden and need ideas. It is a good half day place to visit. One can walk slowly and easily see all it's scenery.
  • I have absolutely adored this place since the very first visit. From field trips in elementary school to romantic dates now, these gardens never get old. Forever perfect. Take the time to visit this little known gem.
  • Very awesome place. You need to visit when you come to Wilmington. The gardens are beautiful. I can't believe it took me 16 years to come here. Probably because of my allergies. They have huge Coi that you can feed and plant sales often. It's really neat.
  • This place was beautiful! Perfectly quiet but there was still people there to help if you have any questions. Very peaceful and even has a Japanese tea house tucked back in the garden. Also features a small children's area with musical instruments and books to read in the kids house. Has picnic tables to have lunch... totally worth a drive (completely free)
  • Beautiful. Plants everywhere. There's koi fish you can feed. There are also statues throughout. Every year they have a plant sale and the plants I bought have held up wonderfully.
