Walkways are elevated and wander thru the bog gardens. Located next to Tanger Garden both could be seen together. Great Bird watching with the highlight being the Owls.

If it is a nice day, it would be worth it to stop by The Bog Garden. Just don't go expecting miles of trails, and you should be pleasantly surprised. It is very beautiful and peaceful, and I got some of the best photos I have ever taken.

Greensboro has done an excellent job in their Parks dept. We have a wide variety of parks available throughout the city.

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!
