Great indoor displays, informative and interesting for all ages. The outside children's play area is a wonderful maze wooden structure. Walking trails are short but really lovely, the kids and dogs can easily navigate them. This is a free, enjoyable experience for all.

Grest place to take children who especially enjoy the bug eating plants and the huge chess set. Learn about the flora of NC in a spectacular setting.

I love coming here to photograph the flowers. There are lots of plants, and there are creeks and ponds with frogs. It is usually very quiet and not crowded. There are also great trails behind.

Excellent place to visit with family and friends to see beautiful native wildflowers of the southeast. Stay up on the wonderful educational programs offered through out the year for adults and children.

Beautiful garden with lot of native plants. Make sure you grab a map so you don't miss any hidden spots and don't forget the bug spray.

We enjoyed our visit tremendously and learned about a program (one of many) that brings nature to sick, hospitalized children, The Wonder Connection. The people who work there are incredibly nice and obviously found their true vocation
