  • There was quite a bit of construction when we went. It's small but nicely laid out with winding paths, pretty focal points. Great place to bring children.
  • A wonderful place to go and relax, walk, meditate, let the children play.... Oh yeah... they have a variety of plants that grow in this area..😀
  • The gardens are beautiful and three all purpose building is great for many kinds of activities
  • This is ranked something like 8 on TripAdvisor, but for me it is the gem of Wilmington. The Arboretum is a place of art, solace, photography, children's discovery, and of course incredible gardening and landscaping.
  • Such a wonderful place to relax.
