Greensboro – Tanger Garden

_MG_1602I was going to Greensboro today to pick up a large canvas print at MasterColor Labs and decided to visit some of the gardens there.  As it turns out I only had time for one… Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. This is a beautiful, formal landscaped 7.5-acre garden. It has sculptures and wonderful little pond. Across the street is the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park. It has an eleveated boardwalk through 7 acres of wetlands. There is waterfall called Serenity Falls and Starmount Farms Lake.  I could hear many birds and ducks were plentiful.

The other gardens are the Greensboro Arboretum which is within 10 minutes of the Tanger Garden. I drove by quickly.. it looked beautiful also. Finally I passed the Gateway Gardens heading back to I-40. So there is plenty to see if you want to spend a day in the gardens of Greensboro.
