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 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.

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.
