Beautiful but river trail was closed.

A nice, peaceful oasis tucked away in the heart of built up Fayetteville. We saw some beautiful wildlife (an eastern racer that startled my wife). Keep in mind that it is $10 a person for entry. Quite large considering the surrounding built up area. They also have quite a few events throughout the month.

Overall, a fun afternoon excursion.

You have to pay to walk this! That being said, this is a very pretty walk especially when you go during the right times of year. They also hold a lot of events here that are fun to go to. But a HUGE drawback for me is that you cannot take pictures here without buying a license to do so! Still, it is a pretty location!

Also, for the family types, this can be done with a stroller but get a little difficult in some areas because about 95% of this is unpaved.

Scenery was gorgeous. Shaded most of the way. Very relaxing

Beautiful Trail, lots of plants and info. Not really a fitness trail. More of a commercial business. If you had a membership to the gardens, this would be a more scenic option that walking the mall...
