Beautiful place, lots of space, landscaped nicely. It is close to a busy road and there are huge power line towers overhead but overall it is a nice place.

Whether you want some peace and quiet among yourself, to walk the dog, to enjoy a quiet conversation with that special someone and enjoy the beautiful flowers, you will not be sorry stopping here..

This is a 17 acre park like setting with nice walkways. What ruins it is the 4 lane major road that runs next to it. The traffic noise ruined it for us. I would pick one of Greensboro's other parks over this one.

A laid back stroll needed after tax day? This is the place. If you like it you'll want to try the bog garden as well; they're fairly close. No wait; do them on separate occasions. Too much of a good thing you know

This is a large park with extensive grounds. Many of the plants and trees are labeled so it's a great way to learn. The sidewalks are very wide which accommodates the many pedestrians, joggers, baby strollers, dogs, etc. One section of the park is next to a highway/road and some power lines which is not as appealing as the rest of the park. Even in the fall, the park was quite busy. I did not find it as peaceful as the other parks I visited on this trip. It is beautiful though and very well maintained. My favorite part was turning a corner and finding the gorgeous, extravagantly huge wind chimes. Very nice.
