  • Nice little garden with walking trails in the middle of town. Not much parking. No bikes allowed.
  • Nice place to have a walk... middle of the city so no need to drive too far. but, personally I think there are better trails in Greensboro which make you feels better... but for a simple walk without spending much energy this one of the good options around here. Also try, below trails for better running/walking * Big Loop in Bur Mill Park * Owl Roost trail * Wild Turky trail * copperhead trail
  • Great park with excellent walking path and a small creek that sounds amazing after a fresh rain. Also there are a handful of pokestops to keep you busy for hours!
  • Beautiful well kept gardens. Great to go with the kids and dog. Watch out for Pokemon hunters!
  • Immaculate, beautiful gardens. Accessible and perfect to stop in for a picnic, walk, or just a breath of fresh air. Plus lots of pokestops...
