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.

The scenery is spectacular any season you visit. The grounds are very manicured and clean. It is a safe place to walk. There are so many species of trees, shrubs and flowers. You cna view frogs and tadpoles in the stream.

We went to walk thru here and it was beautiful. It changes what you can see with the seasons. The walkways are level and nice to walk on.

What a delightful detour on our way to the K and W recently. My family and I took a leisurely constitutional to work off our Saturday meal and enjoyed this natural area in the heart of Greensboro.

While you may have to park at the Friendly Shops, this is such a peaceful area nestled between busy roads and shopping. Nice place for a break in your busy day.

The Bog Garden is a pleasant small public park near downtown Greensboro. The walking trails are easy to manage. Allow about 45 minutes for an unhurried visit. You will see nice arrangements of flowers and the bog has ducks and turtles. Dogs can be brought on a leash and there is adequate parking. Good for walking small children and for... More

It is nice to see the many improvements that have been made to the Bog Garden Walkway over the years. This is a pleasant place to take a break from the daily rat race. Good for a relaxing quiet walk and some fresh air.

The Bog Garden is a wonderful place to walk, sit for a spell or enjoy a picnic lunch. The boardwalk winds through some lovely lightly wooded areas and a small stream too. Just across the street is the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden offering another great space to walk, sit on a bench or rest at a picnic table and enjoy... More
