The bog garden is such a great place to relax for a while. The grounds are always well manicured and the scenery is picturesque. I had my wedding photos taken there and it made the perfect backdrop. One of my favorite places in Greensboro.

No offence to my US cousins, but normally things are huge and low quality in the USA. The bog garden is the opposite, small and nice. It's probably a 5 minute walk up to a low level pond then back to a small planted garden....More

Even though the garden is tucked into a residential area with a busy road on one edge, we found our walk to be very relaxing and serene.

A very relaxing way to enjoy a hot humid day in the shade. Enjoyed the nature and the waterfalls, very tranquil. Parking can be done at the Tanger Gardens with a short walk across the road.
