Exhibits give a great explanation of both the importance of this battle in the Revolutionary War and how it played out. A 2-1/4 driving or walking tour offers a chance to really immerse yourself in the field. I felt I learned a lot here.

This park has nice trails for folks on foot, on bikes, or with dogs and/or strollers and children in tow. There is a lake with paddleboats and areas to reserve for picnics. There is also the historical significance and plenty of statues and markers and information boards to tell you all about what happened where. A couple of times a... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of history! The park is very clean and well tended. I've been living in Greensboro for 30 years and this is a favorite place to visit and walk around. Just beautiful!

This may be the site that changed the war for independence, though Cornwallis claimed the victory his army was so badly mauled it never recovered and set the stage for Yorktown

We stopped by this museum and enjoyed the film depicting the events that happened in this area during the Revolutionary War. The museum was small, but informative and the grounds well kept.

A park that offers many recreational opportunities and most importantly a well organized presentation of the last major engagement in Cornwallis' failed attempt to split the southern colonies from the revolutionary cause. Although considered a draw or even a British victory in the sense that the Colonial forces retreated from the battle field at the end of the day, the... More

This park is a must see for visitors to Greensboro. It is a pretty place but more importantly the battle put Guilford County on the map. There are numerous monuments and plaques; Do not miss the excellent visitor center and museum on Old Battleground Road. A great place to just stroll or ride bikes.

This was the last National park we hit last year when we drove from CA to NC and it is a nice park. Lots of trails for the size, it also is part of the greenway trail system so it is easy to bike to from the north or the south you could even take the bicentennial greenway trail all... More
