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.

I love the Bog Garden for all the native plants and wildlife that lives there. Different trails, small waterfall, plus I met the man that was so instrumental in bringing it together. You'll see a statue in his honor.

My son was in the boy scouts, and had a project to identify the plants and trees, we visited the Bog Garden there were placs showing the names of the trees along along the board walk. this is a beautiful way to spend the day.

This little garden is tucked away in a affluent subdivision in the suburbs of Greensboro. Paved walkway's and boardwalks take you on a tour of a magnificent little garden with items of interest to any gardener. The hike can be strenuous, so be prepared.

I have visited the Bog Garden many times and it is a hidden gem near Shops at Friendly! The ducks and owls make it their home! Also, there is a short trail that I enjoyed with my hiking club.

A beautiful stroll in a wooded area with ducks, fish and hidden nature joys. Unique plants can be seen as well as a hidden waterfall. Wooden path makes walking safe and easy.

The lower trail is completely accessible to a wheel chair but not the hillside trail. You will be able to view most of the garden from the lower trail
