Stone pathways traverse a forested hillside, and visitors can enjoy the sounds of water at Serenity Falls - a re-circulating waterfall - while viewing the many varieties of plants, birds, and other wildlife inhabiting the area. The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

Garden with paths and boardwalk and a creek makes for a pleasant stroll any time of day! It’s part of Greensboro’s city park system and efforts are now underway to remove some of the invasive plants and replace them with native species.
