The natural beauty of this swampy area has been developed into a striking exhibit that features a half-mile elevated wooden walkway providing easy access through the garden. Various trees, wildflowers, shrubs, ferns and other wetland plants can be examined as you stroll through the grounds.
I visited this place in a week day, so i am not sure if it is crowded in weekend. But, for sure it is an authentic place with lots of birds and different plants. It is not paved all the way, it may be muddy around. I loved here because it is kind of hidden and more natural than i expected.
The Bog is a fantastic place for picture taking or just walking quietly through. It offers a variety of plants and animals in a natural setting that has many hidden nature walks. The animal are a part and live in the this man made environment.
Anyone who visits Greensboro, should add this interesting and free park to their agenda.
When you walk into the Bog Garden, you feel like you have discovered a portal to a magicl world. You leave behind the generic McMansions, the frenzied shopping centers, and the speeding mini-vans of Holden Road and Friendly Avenue. You small path and nooks and crannies force you to notice the world around you in a more meaninful way. You take on the eyes of a child. It is not a huge park or an thrilling hike, all of the wonders are small. There is nothing extreme about it. This is the magic of the bog garden.
Great place to stroll. Small nature path great for young children. Can feed the ducks - kids loved that!!! Just a great place to take a break, read a book. A small park but you feel like you are in the middle of the woods.
