A great way to learn more about plants and vegetation that thrive in this part of the country. Plan about one hour and half, it's not big.

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.
