(I'm a 10 year old kid.) My family and I had an okay time. We started out by getting lost in the park. When we made it, we found our way to the entrance and walked up. The viee was okay. What really got me was te animals. Then a nice photographer came up and directed us to an owl!... More

A pleasant stroll, primarily on elevated boardwalk, ending at a small lake. Birds abound, including a pair of mating barred owls. Across the street from the Tanger Gardens.

Located next to the Bicentennial Park, this is a nice trail. Checkout Serenity Falls while you are there.

The Bog Garden is a very lovely park on a hot day. The entire area is covered with shade, so it's a good 15 degrees cooler. Be sure to check out the area that overlooks the lake - perfect for a nice view of the sunset.

The bog garden is beautiful, always providing a surprise. Recently, the adult owl swooped down to a spot by me. Excellent photo opportunity! The Bog Garden is a delight in any season, highly recommended for everyone!

This review would be an "excellent" if this were a larger area. It is more a nature reserve that a park. A walk, some of it elevated,, has been made through this seven acres of natural greenery. It is so peaceful and quiet. We saw squirrels, ducks and birds but not the owl that lives here. There is a man... More

Walking on the boardwalk to the lake makes you feel you are somewhere out of town, yet here you are in the middle of the Greensboro. A great break from the hussle bussle. You don't believe you are so close to a shopping center.

The garden walks in Greensboro are wonderful. I've loved each one for different reasons. This one is great. I recommend anybody visiting the greensboro area to check this out, as well as Bicentennial Garden, Greensboro Arboretum and Gateway Gardens
