“Fayetteville’s Gem”

“This is a great spot to go and spend some time. Connected to the Cape Fear River Trail, the Botanical garden is accessible from points in Downtown Fayetteville – or by car. Start in Downtown and take a leisurely walk or bike ride on the trail to the Garden. There are always beautiful exhibits, a wonderful gift shop, and special…”

“Refreshing Walk Through Nature”

“A mid-summer meant there were less blooming flowers but the gardens were still nice for talking a walk and enjoying time outdoors. Seems like a good place to take children for a relaxing outing. There are few enclosed speciality gardens and everything is labeled fairly well. I would go back the next time blooms are at their peak!”

“Hurricane Florence caused extreme stress in the greenery around the area. Strong winds ripped off bark, snapped limbs off the trees and damaged shrubs and flowers. In response to the stress, the plant goes into a defense mode, which causes it to bud. The blooms will last as long as they would in the spring.” - WECT.com
    • The lush green lawns of the Garden are a beautiful backdrop for any wedding or event! You can really feel the love and happiness of these two from these photos! @johanna_dye Johanna Dye Photography #CFBGWeddings #WeddingVenue #NorthCarolinaWeddings
