This garden features an elevated boardwalk which meanders through 7 acres of natural wetlands. Stone pathways traverse a forested hillside, and visitors can enjoy the sounds of water at Serenity Falls - a re-circulating waterfall - while viewing the many varieties of plants, birds, and other wildlife inhabiting the area. The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

This is a beautiful spot not far from Friendly Shopping Center. It can be easy to miss and parking can be a challenge but it's worth the effort. The paths are well maintained with lots of spaces to stop and talk or sit. We saw plenty of people out, especially with dogs, enjoying the start of Spring. Geese, Ducks, a... More

This is a bog garden, so it's a bit swampy with lots of undergrowth. It's nice for a stroll, and very different from most formal, tidy public gardens. It seems so far away from the city when you are in it, but is very centrally located. Nice for an afternoon walk.

but if you would like a nice walk around a wooded park complete with a small waterfall and a lake with ducks it is worth it. It is right across the street from another garden attraction (can't remember the name). And it is free!

This is one of my favorite spots to pop in and take a break. Right in the heart of prime time shopping at Friendly Center. The ducks and geese are eager to be fed and the walk on the elevated deck is a plus. There is also the man made waterfall on the north side that is calming to the... More

This place is so beautiful peaceful and quite ! Great for a walk or just to get away from the city for an hour or so. The gardens are very clean and the raised boardwalks are nice and wide. You can miss the entrance if you don't know what you are looking for. I actually parked at Tanger Family Bicentennial... More

This is my favorite place in all of Greensboro. In the middle of a bustling city, you’re immediately transported to a serene getaway in a lush forest. This place is absolutely amazing! There are a variety of trails to walk on and the gardens are small enough that even those possessing very little athletic ability are able to see everything... More

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.
