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.

We have had the opportunity to walk thru these gardens a few times and no matter the time of year, it is always quite enjoyable. You will hear animals and birds scampering thru the woods and see all kinds of things on the water.

This would be a nice romantic place for a lunch. Shady, quiet, hidden, cool. Neat little waterfall just a short distance away from the shopping at Friendly Center

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
