I painted live at a wedding in the gardens, and it was gorgeous. It's the perfect backdrop for photos, and I spotted teens in prom dresses in the distance getting their pictures taken. Really lovely.

Beautifully landscaped... no flowers and azaleas in bloom when I went... definitely a nice place for outdoor weddings.... great place for taking pictures of any kind... would enjoy seeing a few more fountains scattered throughout to lend itself for more picture ops

A beautiful garden area that is well kept and attended to. The area is always clean. The spring is the best time to visit but you can enjoy the garden any time of the year.

Nestled in a small pocket of Raleigh, the WRAL Azalea Garden is a gorgeous array of flowers that is hardly ever crowded.

Nice, but small area with a small amount of the flowering shrubs. A bit disappointing, but then, we come from the City of Roses, where a huge acreage abounds with Rhododendrons and Azaleas topping out at 30' tall tress, along with the lower shrub varieties.

After a nice breakfast at Mission Valley we tumbled upon this park with nice flowers. We explored the garden at around 7:30am and there are few other people taking pictures. The weather is sunny and cold enough for a walk in a garden like this...More

Tucked in behind the WRAL TV studios near a busy highway is an amazingly beautiful azalea garden that's gushing with color. Quiet, colorful and filled with walking paths and benches offering respite, this oasis is worthy of the effort to seek it out.
