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.

Nice stroll

Even though the garden is tucked into a residential area with a busy road on one edge, we found our walk to be very relaxing and serene.

A very relaxing way to enjoy a hot humid day in the shade. Enjoyed the nature and the waterfalls, very tranquil. Parking can be done at the Tanger Gardens with a short walk across the road.

I love the Bog Garden for all the native plants and wildlife that lives there. Different trails, small waterfall, plus I met the man that was so instrumental in bringing it together. You'll see a statue in his honor.

This little garden is tucked away in a affluent subdivision in the suburbs of Greensboro. Paved walkway's and boardwalks take you on a tour of a magnificent little garden with items of interest to any gardener. The hike can be strenuous, so be prepared.

I have visited the Bog Garden many times and it is a hidden gem near Shops at Friendly! The ducks and owls make it their home! Also, there is a short trail that I enjoyed with my hiking club.

A beautiful stroll in a wooded area with ducks, fish and hidden nature joys. Unique plants can be seen as well as a hidden waterfall. Wooden path makes walking safe and easy.

For a detour from the hectic and noise of life this is the place if you are in the vicinity. One enters another world with wonderful trees, bushes, flowers, waterways, hidden paths and enchanting waterfalls. Sit on one of the many benches and breath in the air and the green, it will surely do you good. This place is a... More
