We were overwhelmed by the constant noise from commercial lawnmowers on site. Tyler needs to cut grass only before opening or after closing when visitors are absent. We posted the same complaint about the NC Arboretum. We were there on a Friday, and left early...More

We are members and go there for events. Our children also enjoy their outdoor camps during the summer. The whole team does a really nice job.

So many trails to choose from, all well-marked. Can also pick up a map in the visitor center. Lots of shade and things to do for the kids--imaginative treehouses, summer camps, weekday outings and activities. They also have an annual plant sale that is wonderful.
