Hurricane Florence Update (10/10/18): Airlie Gardens will be closed until further notice as we recover from Hurricane Florence. Administrative office and gift shop will open 10/23/18 for membership services, Enchanted Airlie ticket sales and gift shop from 9am-4pm. Our goal is to have the gardens open to the public late October or early November.
Airlie Gardens is primarily a self-guided, walking tour experience. The entire walking tour is 0.9 miles, and our unimproved nature trail adds an additional 0.3 miles, for a grand total of 1.2 miles. It takes most visitors an hour to an hour and a half to enjoy a leisurely walk through the gardens. To download a map of the grounds, please see our Airlie Map Brochure PDF document.
Airlie is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Within the gardens guests may experience mixed paths made of mulch, gravel, grass, and earth, but most paths are paved or pervious concrete. There are resting benches throughout the garden tour, and also few picnic tables are nestled with in the gardens.
