Things To Do Now

posted on February 19, 2020 by Tamara Melvin

Greensboro has it all!

Stay busy this Coronavirus Summer: Isolation doesn’t have to mean “indoors.” Almost all parks are accessible now, due to Phase 2 Reopening Plan in NC. Here is a list of things to do at local parks to get you out of your house and still at a safe distance from other people.

Canoe or Kayak at Lake Brandt 

Sometimes the trail can be quite busy, so we recommend taking to the water for some much-needed tranquility. Canoes and kayaks are available for rental daily.

Have a picnic at BurMil Park 

You won’t have trouble finding a shady spot of lawn to roll out a blanket and enjoy lunch with friends. If picnics aren’t your cup of tea, there are a million other things to do at this park!
