The Bog Garden Reviews & Ratings
A naturalistic park with paved unpacked trails. Part of the walk is on decking as you cross through the big near a small lake. This park is great for seeing wildlife like ducks, turtles, chipmunks, owls, egrets, and other creatures. It’s a great park to walk on hot summer days because it is mostly shaded. A lovely feature is the waterfall that was built into the side of a hill. Most of the trails run beside a small creek where the ducks like to hang out.
Beautiful gardens. Small and easy walking. Entered through the main entrance with plenty of parking. Right off the parking lot is a "little free library" and a picnic area. Most of the park is in shade with easy well groomed walking paths. This would be a great place to bring young kids- they allow tricycles and big wheels for kids but no bikes.
Beautiful gardens! I just recently moved to Greensboro and I am simply amazed by the gems hidden within this city. Loved walking around here and look forward to returning.
A surprisingly unique and enjoyable spot right in the middle of city. It is a big, which doesn't sound like much, but it's beautiful kept up and filled with birds and plant life. My 2 year old and myself loved walking through.
A beautiful, heavily and completely shaded walk through wetlands and such. Much of it is a boardwalk or paved loop. Strange that it is in the middle of the city and well hidden. Proximity to Friendly Center wouldn't be known had you no geographical awareness of Greensboro. Serenity Falls is a good stop and not on the main trail. Easy to see from the trail though. Good photo opportunity. The name fits it perfectly. Greensboro did a great job with this. Just beyond the falls on the main path is a stop at a pond. Signs about not feeding geese and such are here. I have talked to a lady sporadically over a 5-year period or so who comes every Sunday morning regardless of weather. She parks here and relaxes for a couple of hours. Amazing that she is always here and we have exchanged stories, bios, etc. You will see wildlife such as owls, squirrels, chipmunks, turtles, etc. You will also hear owls with their "who" as you walk the loop. Never busy and this is great. Good secret I guess. Greensboro did a fantastic job with it and this is a great serene walk away from the hubbub of the surrounding area.
