sunrise to sunset, and may be reserved for wedding ceremonies on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden is located at
1105 Hobbs Road, just north of Friendly Avenue.
In the center of the garden, the wedding gazebo
area can accommodate 70 to 100 guests. The
garden includes a wealth of plantings from mass
plantings of annuals and perennials, to flowering
and canopy trees, providing a perfect background
for memorable wedding photographs.

The Bog Garden is located at the corner of Hobbs
Road and Starmount Farms Drive, across from the
Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. This unique
natural preserve features an elevated wood plank
walkway. The Bog Garden can accommodate small
ceremonies for 25 to 70 guests. Senerity Falls
provides a delightful backdrop for photographs.
The Greensboro Arboretum is located off West
Market Street and Wendover Avenue. The wedding
gazebo area accommodates 100 to 150 guests. This
17-acre garden features twelve permanent plant
collections and special display gardens along with
structural features, including a fountain, overlook,
arbor, bridges and benches. Wedding guests will
enjoy the year-round beauty of the garden.
