Great place for a walk

This is a great hangout place to stroll around. It's not very big but nice enough for a walk in the nice Greensboro weather.

My wife and I love to come here just to walk, talk and reflect. There are nicely designed corners with sculptures and benches that surprise and delight. Come with that special person or alone. It is lovely.

Was looking for something to do for a few hours in the area and found this! Was a nice, quiet walk with my husband. Found some new ideas for our own yard. Just beautiful.

This place is very pretty all year round. There are lots of flowers and it has plenty of different areas to check out with a beautiful gazebo and pretty bridges. It is fairly large and is a great place for running, which I have done many times. It is worth checking out for a nice walk as well!

As I've said in other reviews I am a bird, animal and flora fanatic. This is a must see if you are into that and in the area.

A friend recommended this park, so a colleague and I visited during a recent business trip. We were looking for somewhere to stretch our legs and get a little exercise, and this fit the bill. It is only about a 15-20 minute drive from the Greensboro airport, so it's really convenient. The walking trail is well maintained and the grounds... More

The display gardens gave us inspiration to go home and redo our landscaping! Everything is well maintained and made for a lovely afternoon walk.

I went here with a group of friends to take pictures before a high school dance. The garden is beautiful and we got some nice pictures. I would definitely recommend the Greensboro Arboretum to a friend!

The arboretum is well maintained and has a lot of plants and wildlife. I've seen owls, Hawks and such along with your run of the mill wildlife. It's a good size paved walkway with some trails through the forest as well. Staff is very friends and willing to talk about the various plants and trees. I've been going here for... More
