Walking and Enjoying Winston-Salem Parks

One of my favorite parts of North Carolina is the wonderful wildlife and lush plants and trees. This time of year, the leaves turn a rainbow of colors and add to the beauty even more. I know how important it is to have walking trails and parks close-by. They let everyone in your family step into the outdoors, exercise, and enjoy picnics and recreation.

Learn more about some of my favorite Winston-Salem parks and a few additional outdoor locales, then give me a call at 336-575-7249 to find your next home near the perfect parks for you and your family.

Tanglewood Park

4061 Clemmons Road, Clemmons, NC 27012

Offering everything from an aquatic center to paved walking trails, horseback riding, and mountain biking trails, Tanglewood is rich in local history and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors at your own pace. Check out the picnic shelters or the weekly farmers market, take your dog to the dog park at Tanglewood, book an evening at the on-site historic bed and breakfast, and so much more.

Reynolda Gardens

100 Reynolda Village, Winston-Salem, NC 27106

From walking trails to manicured gardens and a museum of American art, the Reynolda Gardens area offers a living peek into the buildings and lifestyle once enjoyed by the Reynolds family during the hey-day of tobacco. Reynolda Village offers shops housed in converted buildings from the original estate, while the greenhouse and gardens offer peaceful walking trails that snake through award winning plant collections. For a more rustic adventure, step onto any of the unpaved trails that wind through the nearby wooded areas, crossing streams and wetland areas that are filled with wildlife and unique plants.

Bethabara Park

2147 Bethabara Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27106

Check the local calendar for special events, but don’t wait for a festival to visit this unique reconstruction of one of the original settlements of the region. Complete with working gardens, housing built to settler standards, God’s Acre (the Moravian graveyard), and the Stranger’s graveyard (with headstones dating back to the 1700s), exploring this area is fun for the entire family. The area offers both paved and dirt trails, bridges over streams, varieties of trees and foliage, and a mixture of wildlife; all just steps from modern neighborhoods. A true treat to explore.

Old Salem Strollway

900 Old Salem Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27101

Starting in Old Salem, the strollway is a well manicured pathway that snakes 1.2 miles into downtown Winston-Salem. Start at the Old Salem end to find yourself surrounded by mature trees, historic buildings and shops to explore, a weekend farmer’s market, and rich arts culture. From there, follow the strollway into downtown Winston-Salem, an area with diverse building histories and stories.
