This garden features an elevated boardwalk which meanders through 7 acres of natural wetlands. Stone pathways traverse a forested hillside, and visitors can enjoy the sounds of water at Serenity Falls - a re-circulating waterfall - while viewing the many varieties of plants, birds, and other wildlife inhabiting the area.

 

The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

This is one of the nicest Garden/Park where you can relax, rest, enjoy the beauty and see the nature. It does help to see beautiful birds talking to may be you!

The Bog Gardens are one of our favorite places for a casual evening stroll. Sometimes if you are lucky the owls will make an appearance. Just beautiful.

The Bog Garden is exactly as its name implies, a natural bog area filled with various forms of plant and animal life. If you're looking for brightly colored flowers, go across the street to Tanger Park. At the bog garden you can take a leisurely walk and explore a multitude of green plants, stream life, ducks and geese, many different... More

I love the Bog Garden. Very interesting at any time of year. You always see something different. Greensboro has so many outdoor places to walk.

The Bog Garden is a great change of pace against Gso's other parks. It has a quiet, rustic, and woodsy feel. The ducks and turtles that live in the pond are great.

Gets you back to nature, right in the middle of the city. Clean and well maintained. Safe for all ages. Also a good place to walk your dog. We are regulars here

So, I didn't go in march. But I used to go every weekend with my grandparents. Growing up nearby, it was a weekend staple activity. We would watch the ducks on the pond and enjoy quality time.

This place is unique in the area and can be a pleasant place to walk but it is often crowded. With people walking abreast on the raised walkways, a dog or two leering at the understandably concerned wildfowl, some cute but boisterous kids and you have it.

It was ok, I didn't really understand why it had such high review. It was near the Tanger garden and shops so it's ok to stop by, but no need to go out of the way.
