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.

There' no parking lot and only one sign by the path going in off Hobbs Road turn onto Starmount and park there. We only found it by asking and then coming over from Tanger Family Garden a more obvious find with clearly visible parking lot and visitors building. The Bog is just a few miles easily covered in less than... More

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.
