North Carolina Botanical Garden, Chapel Hill Reviews - Write a Review

  • Wonderful gardens, educational center, and old forest trails to walk on nearby. Also, plants for sale and interesting gifts in the gift shop.

  • Lovely place. Unfortunately, it's a bit heavily travelled now, so not a good place to reliably be alone in the woods. Also, despite clear signs prohibiting it, too many visitors let their dogs off leash. I've had dogs co e at me several times here by owners who don't seem to care.

  • Lots of different plants to see!! Delicious popsicles to eat too!!

  • Love coming here. The staff is so nice and informative. The grounds are beautiful. My favorite was looking at the quits. It never gets old.

  • Agree with the other reviews - beautiful spot but can be crowded at times. Trails are less so if you venture out past the main areas.
