1978, the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens became a reality
with the establishment of the Ebersole Holly Garden. Over
the years, additional gardens have been implemented, including
the Rose Garden, the Conifer Garden, the Sir Walter Raleigh
Garden, the Atkins Hillside Garden, the Fruit & Vegetable
Garden, Hackley Woodland Garden, Ambrose Japanese Garden
and the Desmond Native Wetland Trail Garden. Today, the
Sandhills Horticultural Gardens cover twenty-seven acres.
They are open to the public every day of the year from dawn
to sunset and offer as educational adventure to anyone with
an interest in plants, nature, and design composition.
