This quiet, beautiful arboretum is one of my favorite places in Chapel Hill. I love to experience the change of seasons her as well as just walk through or sit there any time. It is well maintained and has wonderful trees, shrubs and flowers depending on the time of year. It is a gem just on the edge of downtown... More

Not always well maintained in the winter but always lovely for a destressing stroll. It's not very big but the location on campus is perfect.

We had a great visit to this arboretum on the University of North Carolina campus. There are some enormous trees here. The site feels very peaceful. Plants are well labeled and the grounds were very tidy. We would definitely visit this cozy green space again when we are in the area.

Right inside the UNC Campus so very convenient to add to a tour. Pretty but small area. Lots of secluded places to sit and relax. All the plants and trees are labeled so that was very interesting.

What a treat to have such a beautiful spot right in the middle of UNC's campus. It's a tranquil place where you can find students studying, or just relaxing, taking in the beauty of flowers and trees.

We brought our puppy for a walk through the Coker Arboretum and were so pleased with the beautiful, scenic pathway we found. It's a gorgeous arboretum and the perfect place for a Sunday afternoon stroll!

A recent walk thru the Arboretum reminds me of the value of the Coker family bequest to fund this project. Some of the most beautiful plants in the South maintained with care, well marked and in a setting that is peaceful and tranquil in the middle of a bustling campus. A great place for a special picnic.

If in Chapel Hill and would like a place to walk around and relax, this is it. And I never knew it was there until this weekend until our daughter was showing us her dorm for next year. A truly hidden gem
