North Carolina Botanical Garden, Chapel Hill Reviews

  • Very nice garden and it's free (they do accept donations). It's a good learning environment. It is divided into different ecosystems of North Carolina. It has an area for kids. There is also an area where you can watch birds and other cute critters feeding on the fallen bird seed. You are also able to leave the gardens at various locations to go on trail walks.

  • This place is beautiful and free! They have great little paths through many different types of plants. They also have cool t-shirts in their gift shop.

  • Perfect place for seeing beautiful and odd plants, flowers and herbs. When done with the gardens you can take a hike on one of the 3 trails there for some relaxing experience with nature.

  • Not the greatest botanical gardens I've ever been to that's for sure. It was more like a preserve we can walk around and see plants growing in the wild it wasn't well maintained or manicured like you would expect in a Botanical Garden. We went to the Duke botanical gardens right after and it's 1 million percent nicer. We were very disappointed.

  • Awesome place to walk through with a group or alone. Beautifully designed with a wide variety of plant life. Markers can be found throughout the gardens. Metal artworks are beautifully done. Calm enjoyable trails throughout. There are places to sit and rest clean public restrooms, drink vending machine and a store which has a variety of plants, stationary, books, puppets, aprons, pots, yard ordiments and so much more! There are also Pokemon gyms and stops throughout the gardens. Plenty of free parking. I love the gardens. Hope you enjoy, as I know you will!
