Just another gorgeous example of the great free parks & gardens that Greensboro has to offer. Great place for a short stroll to escape the hustle and bustle or for a longer trip on a weekend to relax and unwind. Beautiful flowers and plants are interspersed among giant trees providing ample shade and escape from the heat... a lovely walk... More

Beautiful place, lots of space, landscaped nicely. It is close to a busy road and there are huge power line towers overhead but overall it is a nice place.

Whether you want some peace and quiet among yourself, to walk the dog, to enjoy a quiet conversation with that special someone and enjoy the beautiful flowers, you will not be sorry stopping here..

This is a 17 acre park like setting with nice walkways. What ruins it is the 4 lane major road that runs next to it. The traffic noise ruined it for us. I would pick one of Greensboro's other parks over this one.

A laid back stroll needed after tax day? This is the place. If you like it you'll want to try the bog garden as well; they're fairly close. No wait; do them on separate occasions. Too much of a good thing you know

This is a large park with extensive grounds. Many of the plants and trees are labeled so it's a great way to learn. The sidewalks are very wide which accommodates the many pedestrians, joggers, baby strollers, dogs, etc. One section of the park is next to a highway/road and some power lines which is not as appealing as the rest...

Thoroughly enjoy this little park. Visit all the time for walks with my girlfriend. Labels on the plants, nice walking paths, not too busy (, bathrooms!). Pretty in summer and winter -- I think of it as a little extension of Duke gardens in Greensboro (used to live near Duke).

This is such a nice place to just go take a walk and relax. The flowers are beautiful and the trails are very nice and manicured. It does get very crowded on weekends. I like to go during the week on my lunch break.

A bit busy on the weekends but overall one of the nicer parks in town. Parking can be tricky if you are trying to get to the playground and don't know to turn further down the street.
