The gardens were about 15 minutes away from where we were staying on the Riverwalk in Wilmington. Fairly easy to find. Parking was ample. There was a funeral going on at the cemetery located on the property, but we easily stayed away from that part...More

We love gardens and this was a pleasant 90 minute walk. There is plenty of places to sit and they have a gift shop with some refreshments.

It's a beautiful small garden that brings so much peace and history. Tucked away in Wilmington, it's inexpensive and a nice day spent with family and friends.

We toured these gardens today and enjoyed it immensely. Tickets were reasonably priced and we were provided with a walking trail map and verbal instructions. We enjoyed all the gardens and history. We found the old cemetery particularly interesting and spent a little time there....More

Is it easy to use a rollader to stroll most areas or is it rock paths? I would like to bring my mother this week.

I took photos during their "enchanted Airlie" when we toured their Festival of Lights. Not sure if it's allowed during the day. I don't see why not. You can't take professional photos out there.
Are pets allowed to enter the gardens ?
