We walked around for an hour and enjoyed every minute. The place should not be missed as it has blooms in October.

Beautiful garden in the middle of the city. Is between the WRAL and The University. Very nice for the Students or News cast to take a brake and enjoy a relaxing time. Open to the public and free.

When the azaleas are in bloom, this place is a treasure! I would not travel more than an hour to see it (it is a small place), but if you're local, don't miss it.

Most of the azaleas were past blooming time but there were huge buds on rhododens, peonies, and hydrangeas. The garden will be very colorful again in a week or so.

We were fortunate enough to visit here this spring when everything was in full bloom. It was just beautiful. Several families were having portraits made. This was the perfect spot! Also, beautiful for weddings and photos. Visit in the spring!

Lovely area to walk around and even better for taking photos. Many opt to use the garden for their wedding. Easy to walk the paths and admire the abundance of flowers.
