The Sarah P. Duke Gardens consist of approximately of landscaped and wooded areas at Duke University. There are of allées, walks, and pathways throughout the gardens. The gardens are divided into four areas, the Historic Core and Terraces, the H.L Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, the William Louis Culberson Asiatic Arboretum and the Doris Duke Center Gardens (including the Page-Rollins White Garden). The gardens are a memorial to Sarah Pearson Duke, mother of Mary Duke Biddle and wife of Benjamin N. Duke, one of Duke University's benefactors.
The gardens are the best. I walked through them every day my junior year to get from Central Campus to the quad and it's a very relaxing, beautiful way to start/end the day. It's also nice to just hang out in the gardens with friends on a nice day. There's lots of different sections, so be sure to do a full wander.
Great spot for a picnic lunch or afternoon stroll. Peaceful and tranquil. The gardens are free but you must pay for parking. Get there early or go during the week because the gardens close at 3:00pm on the weekends, for weddings.
Beautiful! We could've spent all day there. The grounds are expansive with 3 separate type of plants and flowers. My husband and I loved it and wished we could've spent more time there!
Big and beautiful. To have the best time check the weather before hand, and plan to spend all day
Excellent gardens. Tranquil and stunning !
