  • This is a historical park with great walking trails to get or stay in shape in. My nephews have participated in numerous sporting events and we've shared picnic lunches here.

  • The Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is the site of one of the "largest and most hotly contested" battles of southern campaign during the Revolutionary War. The park itself boast several trails for unfinished trails for hiking, biking and some paved paths around it's (mostly) wooded 220 acres. If you love history, the outdoors, or both, you'll love this park. There are lots of places to see around the park and the literature about the battles and battle fields is well made. The visitor's center offers lots of information about the site and the history of the battles that took place. While the grounds are lovely, the exterior of the visitor center is a little outdated and could use a refresh.
  • Wonderful large park with good walking trails. The signs interpreting the site are informative and well-done.
  • One of the best parks in Greesboro, lots of historical interest scattered all around and easy to walk to. Nice for bikes, dogs, family and tourists. Good for recreational hot days in summer, lots of shady trails and connect to Country Park and Greensboro Science Center
  • Perfect place to relax or exercise. You can visit the air conditioned museum that has a free movie in a small theater and a wonderful staff of park rangers/historians. Unique trinkets and gifts to buy. Lots of things on display from the actual battle. Trails with informative signs. Dog friendly park.
  • Interesting, well-maintained historic park. The museum has displays and videos detailing the significance of the Battle at Guilford Courthouse to the Revolutionary War, and visitors can take a walking or driving tour of the battlefield that includes informative displays at intervals. The asphalt loop can be driven in a car, ridden on a bike, or walked. The Atlantic and Yadkin Rails to Trails greenway passes through the park, so anyone looking for a nice, scenic route to bike or walk/jog can connect with the greenway to get some more mileage. The asphalt loop also connects to the loop at Country Park for even more mileage and scenery including the Veteran's Memorial, two small lakes with pedal boats and resident Canadian geese and ducks, a Bark Park for dogs, and playgrounds and picnic shelters.
