This 1,200-acre park was once the estate of William Neal Reynolds, brother of tobacco businessman R.J. Reynolds. The Reynolds willed the Tanglewood property to the citizens of Forsyth County to share as a public recreational park. The combination of its streams, woodlands, and grassy pastures with the traditions of its architecture, horses, gardening, and wide range of recreational activities make Tanglewood an ideal countryside park to visit over and over again.

try going during the week on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday nights and the line will be much shorter than on the weekend. Have to go every year. This year the marshmellows were back and much safer setup.

We visit frequently; we have a year round pass we like it so much. The Spring of the year when the azaleas, etc. are in bloom is my favorite. Don't miss the arboretum! Lots of things for the kids to do in the park; the pool, swings, fishing, the big locomotive and lots of room to wear themselves out running... More

If your the kind of folks that drive through neighborhoods to see Christmas decorations you will love the drive through the park experience. Allow at least 2 hours. Part of that is waiting on the line to get in. If you like to shop Christmas stores, get some hot chocolate and take the tractor ride allow at least another hour.... More

Visited on a weekday to see the festival of lights with my significant other. The lights were fantastic. I can't speak too much about the park itself because it was dark outside and I was only there for the lights.

Tanglewood is a truly spectacular place. It's the second time we have been. I purchased a hayride for my family as their "gift if time" this year. It was 135.00 worth of amazement. We enjoyed it so much. We were a tad bit disappointed in the pick up area. We arrived early, 7:30 for a 9:00 PM trip. They told... More

What a wonderful time for family and friends. We had a great time, some new lights, new music with the bells, fun roasting marshmallows and hot coco. Don't go in a hurry, take time to enjoy fun, lights, family and friends. You can do a hayride or carriage ride with reservations.

Tanglewood Festival of Lights is a very nice family event to enjoy IF you can deal with the morons that drive through the park with their lights on, even after having passed multiple signs asking to turn lights off. One word of caution.........expect major delays until after Christmas.

Last night we visited the Tanglewood Festival of Lights for the first time. We followed the directions on the website to arrive for our Thursday evening visit. The lights just after the entrance were very nice. Then for the next 40 minutes or so we drove very slowly by shapes and figures in lights - elves, mostly - that you... More
