Over the years, Duke Gardens has expanded to encompass four unique areas: the Historic Gardens, the Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, the Culberson Asiatic Arboretum, and Doris Duke Center Gardens. The Gardens welcomes 375,000 visitors a year, including students pursuing academic class work, Durham community members, and visitors to Duke University and Durham.
