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!

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

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.
