  • 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)
  • The Arboretum in Wilmington is truly a gem. Beautiful plantings, inspired groupings, eg., Children's hands -on garden, Native plants, Japanese house, fish feeding station on pond to name a few. Easy to walk the entire garden. And the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Even my husband wants to go back!
  • Abundant offerings at their annual plant sale. Beautiful, well-manicured gardens! Such a nice outing that we shall return to visit. We were assisted graciously by their numerous volunteers and master gardeners. Thank you!
  • Is a really cool place to spend time with family and I saw some people doing photos session wich I think is a perfect idea in the perfect place to do so. Definitely would come back to visit again.
  • What an incredible jewl! I am from Washington State and have been very impressed with what Wilmington has to offer
