  • I love to walk here, year round. I love that it is dog friendly.. and my fur friends always have a great time here. I love that it always so pretty here, with different types of plants and flowers all the time. It is fun that I see folks of all ages here. Some are moms with strollers, some are kids getting their elderly moms or dads to exercise. Some are people like me, getting their steps in. It is a great place, with mostly comfortable, shady walkways to walk in, with a restroom when you need it, and water fountains here and there. Great job, Greensboro!
  • I love this park. I always feel safe running here and I love the fact that they have water fountains for adults, kiddies and our furry friends. They also have clean restrooms which make this my go-to place to get in a workout.
  • Have been coming here since I was a child. Such beautiful grounds and a great little picnic area. Also when I went there was a man playing beautifully on a fiddle.
  • Beautiful, relaxing and tranquil. Such a peaceful place to go and explore. I was taken in a date to this oasis.
  • Beautiful park. Safe and wonderful setting. Wonderful park to take a walk with the family. Great Pokeman stops.
