The Bog Garden is a wetland in the city...interesting and worthwhile. Just don't expect to get a workout here...it is small but attractive given its location next to a shopping center.

Based on the picture and reviews, I was expecting more. It's a small trail by a little lake, but it was a pleasant walk. I don't like that you can see the cars rushing by.

This garden is an amazing display of nature. Walk around on the wood pathways, over creeks and surrounded by gorgeous trees. Spot owls and an array of colorful birds. sit and take it all in once you reach the lake. It is gorgeous every season, but fall...oh fall is breathtaking!

Lovely place to walk with shade in summertime and Gso Beautiful does a great job of maintaining. Nice waterfall too.

Enjoy a nice walk if you are in the area, but I would not go too far out of my way to experience the bog!

Right across the street from the Bicentennial Garden in Greensboro is this lovely raised walkway through a marshy, boggy area. It is different but very interesting. Almost like being in another world off a busy street in the city. Try it!.

Very nice and a great place to see the gardens and get some exercise. We joined my son and his dog to see the entire Garden in about an hour.

The Bog Garden was so much more than I anticipated. It's a really good size park with beautiful scenery and really nice boardwalks and trails. Went mid-week with my dog for a new place to walk and enjoyed it thoroughly. It's nicely shaded, so even on a hot day it is a great place to be. Highly recommend for both... More

The Bog Garden is a unique walkway into the marshy end of a small lake. Raised decking winds through the trees just a few feet above the marshy area feeding the lake. The Bog Garden presents a rare opportunity to venture into this natural environment. It is teaming with native wildlife including birds, ducks, fish, as well as natural flora.... More
