Really a breathtaking garden for a long walk or to just sit and read. Not a ton of sitting spaces (i.e. benches) but you can step on the grass almost everywhere. Good to bring your families. If you want quiet, don't go on the weekend...More

It is a must to meander through these gardens. Although we did not see all of the gardens the perennial garden still had lots of blooming flowers and shrubs.

I am a frequent visitor of the gardens when I want to relax in the afternoon and share some time with myself. It is one of those sites where you can simply disconnect from the surroundings and breath. Must visit if you are at Durham!...More

Toured the garden with a neighbor who happens to be a guide there. Something for everyone. You could spend day or a week there. Beautiful!

This was my second visit to the Gardens. The first was for my daughter's wedding pictures, and the latest was to introduce out if town guests to the peaceful and beautiful gardens. We were able to sit and visit and relax.

This is a must see! It is free, relaxing and beautiful. I was there in 98 degree, humid weather in bright sun, and it was still so nice.
