Being on a business trip for 5 weeks and coming from WNC to Greensboro is kind of different. There are a lot of hotels and restaurants and it's like the business circle of life over here. I was trying to find anywhere that was just beautiful and a escape from all of the chaos. In my travels, I stumbled upon... More

An always relaxing place to stroll. The arboretum staff and volunteers work hard to keep the flowers and plants in good condition. Good place to take photos

We took an early morning walk and we're rewarded with cool shaded areas and beautiful surroundings. A gem in the city. Many beautiful plantings labeled for easy identification. We observed and photographed a hawk up close and personal. The huge windchimes have an ethereal resonance that I found mesmerizing. Go early in the day if it's warm and you want... More

This is another great park in Greensboro, the city has done a great job keeping it clean and safe. The trail is sort but there is a lot to see. Stop in and enjoy a little nature.

Fabulous place to walk, picnic, and play. The Lindley Park playground is connected by a bridge. There are fantastic festivals and "street fairs" that set up periodically throughout the year, offering "An Evening in Paris" or a "Summer Solstice Festival." I love having this place in our city.

the Arboretum is lovely but not very big-very pleasant walking around. There are places to sit and rest. It is nice for a couple of hours.

Even though it's summer, we had a beautiful walk through the park today. There was the right amount of sun and breeze. The shaded spots were lovely. About this time, there is a lot of greenery. There are probably more colors in the Spring. Overall, it is a nice place for a romantic walk with some great spots to take... More

I love a leisurely stroll through the arboretum. The plants and trees are labeled, which is neat because I'm always wondering, "What IS that? I wish I had one in my yard!" The paths are asphalt-covered for easy biking, roller-blading, and walking. There is a charming gazebo and a lovely trellis. A stream runs through. There is local artwork displayed,... More
