Attraction details
Owner description: 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 garden is across the street from the Tanger Bisc. Garden. The Bog Garden starts with a wonderful nature trail to a stream then following a boarded and railed walkway along the stream and bog areas to a lake. Small wildlife is abundant throughout the garden. Very shaded and great for spring and summer visits. A key area is what I call the founders corner where a nice tribute to the founder is a tranquil stone waterfall, seating and plants. A feature of this garden is cameras and motion detectors so don't plan on anything illegal. Well hid for nature - lol. More of a shade, nature and bog garden which is different than Bisc. Garden which is more formed and colorful with blooming flowers. The Bog Garden is a unique feature to the Greensboro landscape.

This is the perfect fall walk, but I would never do it alone-especially after reading a murder mystery! This is actually a really unique location. It is hard to believe that it is across the street from very formal gardens in an upscale neighborhood, behind an extremely busy shopping center. Handicapped accessible, you can walk on board walks and cement pathways. Not accessible to all is a hidden small waterfall and steeper paths that run off through the woods. There is a lake with ducks, geese, birds, and there is rumors of a giant water turtle. Haven't seen it yet, but who knows.

Nice but not large and not a lot of color. It only takes a few minutes to walk round. Worth doing if you are visiting the Bicentennial garden
