This beautiful garden is a lush, peaceful nature preserve, filled with ducks and other small creatures. It's a small wetland in the city! If I lived in Greensboro, I'd come here all the time to relax and recharge. Don't miss it! It meanders through 7 acres on an elevage boardwalk that makes it easy for anyone to stroll and see the sights, even with a walker. Plenty of places to stop and sit down, too, if someone in your party needs to. I told my parents that every time I come to visit, I want to return to this wonderful place!

The Bog Garden is a great place to take a walk with wonderful scenery, trees, plants, etc. The tree cover keeps it nice for early morning or late evening strolls when things are a little cooler.

Well kept secret of Greensboro, I go there for the owls and to bird watch. Can't help but get into it, glad this place exists and they haven't torn it down to expand those pesky shopping centers.

We loved this garden. Lots of birds and very peaceful space. The falls were impressive as were the foliage in this garden. Would definitely go there again.

This little gem is well-worth the visit if you are looking for a nice little stroll. The main trail is handicapped accessible and provides an upclose experience with nature. Almost year round you can feed the ducks and the geese and see turtles sunning on the logs. Right now there is a pair of owls nesting in the garden and they have proven not to be camera shy. Great place to take the kids or go for a walk with someone special.
