About the Garden

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. Admission is free.

To make a reservation for group events, weddings, or other special events, call 336-373-5888.

David Caldwell Historic Park

David Caldwell Historic Park is located adjacent to the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden.
Paved walkways link the Park to the Garden.

The Reverend David Caldwell was one of Greensboro's outstanding historic residents. Caldwell (1725-1824) was a Presbyterian minister, a self-trained physician, and an early educator in colonial North Carolina. At this site in 1767, he was the founder of the Log College which educated many prominent men of the day. Bicentennial Garden is part of the portion of land on which the academy, its campus, and his home once stood. In 2000, Greensboro Beautiful received a bequest for further enhancement of David Caldwell Historic Park, and for historical research, additional archaeological survey work, and for the construction of an interpretive center on the property. The Interpretive Center at David Caldwell Historic Park was dedicated on April 20, 2007, and educates visitors about David and Rachel Caldwell, the academy, David Caldwell's contributions to our state and region
