Known for its massive annual plantings and bronze sculpture, this 7.5-acre garden is a popular and relaxing retreat. A Wedding Gazebo adds an air of elegance, a man-made re-circulating stream provides texture, movement and sound, and a Sensory Garden engages visitors in an interactive landscape experience. A variety of sculpture placed throughout the garden provides artistic and historic interest, and a Paver Plaza, located at the garden's entrance, offers a way to lend your name to the garden. The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free. A visit to Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Greensboro vacation maker app to plot your vacation.

A great place for a walk! Lots of paved trails, some of which are wheelchair accessible. The garden has flowers most times of year. A newly built mill replica is fun to explore. At the back of the garden are two porch swings that are perfect for a relaxing break from your walk. It’s a perfect spot for a photo shoot, but be sure to get the necessary permits.
The Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens is one of my favorite places in Greensboro! It's beautifully landscaped with various flowering annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees. There are many interesting sculpture throughout the gardens - Free To Soar, The Student, Wings, and Music Stand & Bench are a few of my favorites. The Old Mill is a recent addition to the park and is a free standing water wheel that's very relaxing to watch while sitting on a nearby bench. I really love the Bicentennial Gardens and enjoy taking Josey Wales, my Mini Schnauzer, there for daily walks. I would also highly recommend visiting the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park, which is right across the street.
