Any day of the week . . . any month of the year . . . there is always a walk in Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden waiting for you.  That is if you find yourself in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Whether it is exercise or a stroll through to enjoy the gardens, it is always a good idea.

The 7.5 acre garden was established in 1976 as part of Greensboro’s bicentennial celebration.  Through sculpture and restored buildings it serves also as a memorial to David Caldwell (1725 – 1824) and those students who would have attended his college on the adjacent property in the late 18th and early 19th century.  For more garden history go here.

The main garden is handicap accessible.  The wild flower garden is accessible with some assistance, but there are a few steps and hills.  Lastly, make sure not to miss the Camberly Garden which is in honor of Camberly Holliday, the daughter of former Greensboro Mayor.  For more on garden features go here.  While you are at Tanger, don’t miss the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park that is just across the street (handicap accessible).
