Things To Do Now

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!


Scavenger hunt at Greensboro Arboretum

A fun activity to do with kids: create a Scavenger Hunt and set off for the Arboretum! Will you find something red? What about a bug that flies? You’ll only know if you try!
