This place is very relaxing. You can walk along the trails and see the different section of flowers and plants. Very friendly people work here. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Beautiful and tranquil gardens. My toddler especially enjoyed the Bootanical event during Halloween. It was a fun evening walking through the gardens in costume! Not scary and family friendly.

We had a great time looking at the night display and night movie. There were games and different groups of people handing out treat for the kids.

Unique installations. It pays to keep track of the new exhibitions. The ones around Christmas were amazing. My grandson, age 5, really love them.

Great place to walk around and smell the roses...... get it? seriously though, it's surprisingly nice given the climate and soil in the area. Hopefully more will be planted as time goes on but it's a great place to spend an afternoon or have a picnic.

Botanical gardens are a favorite pass time. I thought I'd give Cape Fear a chance. I must say that I wasn't impressed with this garden. It is winter, so I didn't expect to see many flowering plants however, I expected to see more greenery. There is an admission fee to enter so I was expecting more than I would receive... More

I enjoyed seeing the gardens. Some bushes were blooming. The down side is that some of trails were closed due to the 2016 storm. Lots of open space and tranquillity.

This is a lovely place to visit or to use as a venue for an event. It is a perfect place for a wedding or a conference. It is adaptable and can handle groups of all sizes.
