We were lucky to have gorgeous weather on Sunday 9.11 so we decided to take a trip to the Greensboro Bog Garden and enjoy some peace and quiet with nature as a family. There are 4 free public gardens in Greensboro thanks to the Greensboro Beautiful project (the Bog Garden, Gateway Garden, Bicentennial Garden, and Arboretum). This is a smaller garden with more trees and bushes than flowers, there are pops of color throughout though. There are no facilities at this garden. The path is very clear and changes from dirt to a wooden boardwalk and there are smaller dirt paths that lead to some secluded places.
|The Bog Garden is about 20 minutes from us|
|Water flows through the garden and the path leads to a small lake|
|Look at all the fish!|

If you take one of the smaller paths off the boardwalk it will lead you to a small memorial waterfall for the founder of the Bog Garden, Dr. Joseph Christian. There is a statue of him at the entrance of the park as well.
