  • This is my favorite place to walk. It doesn't matter what time of year or what the weather conditions are, you are always protected by the dense tree coverage. Being a military park there is a lot of ...  read more »
  • Why did military troops wear bright colors and fight in a sea of green trees? I didn't learn that answer but learned a lot more in this small park encased in the surrounding urban area. The park had g...  read more »
  • I usually walk the Greensboro A&Y trails, but chose recently to walk the Guilford Courthouse National Battleground Park. On those sunny warm days, there is good shade. The tarmac roads and trains are ...  read more »
  • 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 While the grounds are lovely, the exterior of the visitor center is a little outdated and could use a refresh.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I lived less than a half mile from this park when I was young. Little has changed, but the park is still as amazing and full of history, as ever. We used to find musket balls there quite often. I hope they can keep funding the park well enough for other kids to enjoy for a long time.
  • This is a well presented centre - displays are excellent. Although we (British) won the battle, we went on to lose the war! I learned a lot in here and outside in the parkland.
