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.

We have had the opportunity to walk thru these gardens a few times and no matter the time of year, it is always quite enjoyable. You will hear animals and birds scampering thru the woods and see all kinds of things on the water.

This would be a nice romantic place for a lunch. Shady, quiet, hidden, cool. Neat little waterfall just a short distance away from the shopping at Friendly Center

You can almost miss the Bog Garden if you are not sure where you are going. However, though it is hidden the surroundings are nice and I just had a sense of calm and peace while walking there.

Right across the street from a major mall, but easy to miss the entrance. Very nice walking trails with a boardwalk the elevated you above the water/swamp as necessary which afforded you nice views of wildlife. A nice serene walking path all around a nice lake with many ducks. Many benches to hang out and view or read. A number... More

This park is one of the reasons why I love the Greensboro area. So many "secret places" like this are hidden amidst shopping malls and high-traffic areas. Once you park your car and begin walking, it's as though you have been swept into a secret garden. It is so quiet on one side of the street, where there is a... More

I take my dog here to walk sometimes. It's convenient to the bicentennial. Can be a little noisy sometimes and when it rains or snows the wooden walkway section over the water can become pretty slippery.

I have lived in Greensboro a long time and I never knew this place existed. A friend brought me here and I loved how tucked away it was. I got to point my bird knowledge to the test and try identifying each bird I saw. The trails were dry and well kept. Its location is perfect if you need a... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time. We went spring day before it got too hot. There was lots of shade. There are several places to stop and sit. Looking over the lake was beautiful and we saw tons of turtles. Perfect for time with your family and fresh air. I was also happy to discover that it is... More

Beautiful, very green and full of wildlife. Such a nice walk. See ducks, geese, herons and many song birds. Some parts of the walk are on wooden paths, while other parts are dirt and some stone steps.

The Bog Garden is a great place to take a Sunday afternoon stroll with your family or simply by yourself. You can observe nature in a quiet, serene, and natural environment.
