I enjoyed it a lot. My 12 and 14 yr old liked the koi pond. For a quarter you can feed the fish. I loved all the plants . I would go again giving the chance.

If you love gardening this is the place to go. It's small but very pleasant. We walked around with our dog and enjoyed looking at the large variety of plants.

We spent free time walking the grounds and looking at the gardens. Would be interesting for people who plant their own gardens as there is a co-op section.

We went for a couple of hours. What a perfect day date for a family, or even a couple. We’ve taken our daughter there a few times now, but it would be a beautiful location for a date night, a proposal, or even a wedding!...More

If I lived in Wilmington near the arboretum, I think I would want to walk there every week. The Japanese garden is lovely. There is a sea dragon metal sculpture in the pond and you can catch a lovely red Japanese maple behind it in...More
