  • The history of this establishment is interesting. The gardens sit on 3.25 acres, but when I was walking through them, it only seemed like one. The gardens are broken up in small areas and many paths.....  more »
  • We really enjoyed this garden and the sister garden down the street (one admission covers both). Well maintained and unique features spread throughout the grounds. Nice retreat right in Charlotte...  more »
  • Nice place. Nice flowers. If you are lucky, you will get to see many butterflies
  • An awesome place to stroll & relax among the fragrant flowers & singing birds. The children’s playground area is terrific also.
