“Great for plant lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We visit this park often. It is a great place for a walk with our dog (on a leash). I suggest if you go in winter that you definately go back in spring or summer to see all the great plants in bloom. I love this park any time of year, though.

“Delightful”

Me and my husband went for a walk around here and it was just a beautiful place to spend time together. We went another time with friends and had a nice picnic.

“Beautiful and relaxing place to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

I have lived in Greensboro 30+ years and have watched as the Aboretum evolved. I walk with or with out my dogs a couple of times a week. The paved walkway is wide enough to accommodate strollers, dogs and people. When the rose garden is in bloom - it is stunning. Love the sculptures , butterfly garden , babbling creek and the play ground area. Nice that there are bathrooms located in the park - one at each side of the park.

Ample parking and since it is a one way street into the area , not as much as traffic. One can also park along the upper street and walk down into the park.

Overall, a very nice place to spend time with your family , have a picnic with your kids and play with your dogs..
