Spent an hr or so admiring the gardens, very pretty stroll in the morning before it got too hot. Nice to learn about the history of Airlie. Recommended for some peace and a quiet stroll. Kids scavenger hunt was a plus

Beautifully manicured park like botanical garden, just a stone's throw from The Intercoastal Waterway. Lot's of events held there all year round, and worth repeat visits.

I've been to AG a hundred times or more and never tire of it. I love to take photos. If you go on a hot day be aware. Summer heat can be brutal.

This is a lovely Christmas tradition; it is well-staged, and handles a large volume of attendees like clock-work... but one doesn't feel rushed. It is a magical parade of color & light! I wish I had grandchildren to bring here.

When visiting Airlie Gardens, bring your walking shoes, your camera, and your peaceful mindset to enjoy this jewel of Wilmington. The gardens are beautiful! The wildlife is gorgeous! Leave enough time to wander all the paths and see all the vistas.

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.
