As you begin to plan your outdoor wedding, the Greensboro Parks & Recreation Department invites you to consider one of our three beautiful gardens: Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, Greensboro Arboretum and Bog Garden. The Gardens of Greensboro are open year-round, sunrise to sunset, and may be reserved for wedding ceremonies on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Visit Bicentennial Garden  Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden is located at 1105 Hobbs Road, just north of Friendly Avenue. Located in the center of the garden, the wedding gazebo area can accommodate 70-100 guests. The garden includes a wealth of plantings from mass plantings of annuals and perennial to flowering and canopy trees, all providing a perfect background for memorable wedding photographs.
 Visit the Bog Garden The Bog Garden is located at the corner of Hobbs Road and Starmount Farms Drive, across from Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. This unique natural preserve features an elevated wood plank walkway. The Bog Garden can accommodate small ceremonies for 25-70 guests. Senerity Falls provides a delightful backdrop for photographs.
 Visit the Arboretum The Greensboro Arboretum is located off West Market Street and Wendover Avenue. The wedding gazebo area accommodates 100-150 guests.

Wedding guests will enjoy the year-round beauty of the garden.
