“Great park”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

A bit busy on the weekends but overall one of the nicer parks in town. Parking can be tricky if you are trying to get to the playground and don't know to turn further down the street.

“Beautiful Scenic Location”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

Found this place while working out with my trainer and thought it was absolutely beautiful. It's such a nice place that makes you'll almost forget you're in a busy city. I went back a couple of times and discovered the rest of the park, there's beautiful flowers and trees with different sections for different flowers, nice benches to sit and talk. I would recommend it for a nice walk for a couple or even just a jog for someone working out. It's also pet friendly for pets on a leash.

Beautiful arboretum, wonderfully laid out to make the best use of the property. Plants labeled for your information. Only negative, constant traffic noise from the nearby road.

“Great asset for Greensboro”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

A great place to visit for couples, families and groups. Most trails are paved with some nature areas for shade plants. This garden also features a wedding area, sculpture and children's play areas near by. A wide selection of trees, plants & shrubs. Best to visit spring thru fall but with the evergreens winter is good also. Perfect for exercise. On occasion musicians frequent and practice their music which is an added touch ( if they are good - lol ). We visit several times a year.
