Fayetteville Rose Garden is a must-see for all visitors to Fayetteville, North Carolina. The gardens are located at the intersection of College Street and Green Street in the heart of downtown Fayetteville. There’s more than just flowers here; there’s also a gift shop, picnic areas with tables and grills, benches to sit on while you enjoy your lunch or dinner from one of the nearby restaurants, and an 8-foot waterfall that cascades into a natural pool surrounded by large rocks.

The beautiful Fayetteville Rose Gardens are situated on 23 acres and feature over 15,000 roses. Visitors will enjoy several special events held throughout the year, including concerts, festivals, weddings, and other private functions. The garden is also home to an Amphitheater that has been used for various theatrical performances, including Shakespearean plays that have taken place at this location since 1936! There are four gardens available to visit within the grounds – Main Gate entrance features 12 rose beds surrounding it with 400+ different varieties; Japanese Terrace boasts 60 species growing along its walkways; Eric Pape’s Collection includes 100 miniature bushes planted by famous American sculptor Eric Pape, and finally the Climbing Rose Garden which includes over 300 varieties of climbing roses.

Fayetteville Rose Gardens is beautifully maintained by just one full-time employee who takes care of all the pruning, fertilizing, planting, and pest control that goes into maintaining this garden throughout each year. This photograph was taken during my visit in May 2014 when it was at its best, but if you are planning a trip here, why not check out their website to see what special events may be taking place – they have some great offers available, so don’t miss out!
