Wonderful beautification program in all of the Greensboro parks. This one, nestled in a residential area, was created by an individual and is maintained by an organization of volunteers.

It is always pleasant to stroll through the garden, except when it is 98 degrees out, of course! It's fun to watch the waterfowl and to explore the paths.

A cool drink of water on a hot day. There were chipmunks, ducks, beautiful birds, bamboo, softly padded trails, kids playing - a wonderful treat.

It's a sweet small garden with many nooks and crannies in which to explore. Saw plants I never knew existed.

The Bog Garden is small but beautiful. A creek runs through it and a wooden boardwalk lets you walk above the marshy ground. Lots of beautiful and interesting plants, a large pond with a lookout point, benches to sit and relax. Extremely popular with dog walkers and duck feeders. Good for birdwatchers, too.

Cornwallis Drive, and running into the back side of Friendly Shopping Center. The other 2 are the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden/David Caldwell Historical Site, and the very small, very hidden Benjamin Park, which starts out behind... More

Take a stroll through The Bog Garden. It is just lovely! Spring...summer...fall...even winter. Such a beautiful and peaceful place in the heart of the grand city of Greensboro. My mother, an avid gardener, fell in love with it when I took her for a stroll during her visit from Colorado. It's just a great place to visit to shake off... More
