More Than Just Christmas Lights

Tanglewood Park is well-known throughout the Piedmont area and North Carolina for its sensational Festival of Lights display featured annually at Christmas time. While this is most definitely something to talk about, most people overlook the other amenities the park offers year-round. One of these features of the park that can be enjoyed while avoiding the park entry fee is the multi-use trails at the front of the park.

On any given day of the week (weather permitting), you can find people using the trails for exercising, dog-walking, and recreation. Parents and children can walk leisurely at their own pace as the paved trail makes it simple for pushing a stroller or pulling a wagon for the little ones. The safe environment also makes the trail an excellent choice for individuals wanting to get outdoors on their own for a walk, bike ride, or jog. Of course, it is always good to maintain general safety precautions when by yourself, but generally, the trails offer public views and a regular flow of other trail-users.

The paved trails wind around a beautiful wooded area making an afternoon walk, jog, or bike ride worth turning into a regular habit.

Trail Terrain

The variety of landscape on the trails is an excellent diversion from the treadmill or average sidewalk jog which is one reason joggers and casual exercisers enjoy taking advantage of the hills and curves along the wooded trail. The trail runs through and around a large wooded area and has paths leading past the park's horse stables, soccer fields, and several shelter houses. There are benches along the way for those needing to rest or just wanting to take a break and enjoy the scenery.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and trail access is available in three different locations near the main entrance to the park. The first two are situated off of the North Trail Road to your left before reaching the entrance gate. The other is located on the left as well but is slightly past the entrance at Shelter 2 which requires a fee of $2.00 per vehicle. Once inside the park, you will also be able to access the many other features available as well such as tennis, playgrounds, picnic areas, fishing, and more. If you choose to participate in these other activities often, an annual pass would be worth purchasing for the cost of $25.00 (Not including admission to events or extra activity fees).

Get Outdoors

For those living in or around Forsyth County, Tanglewood's multi-use trail is an easy choice when looking for outdoor recreation. Bring a friend or the whole family for time well-spent staying fit and taking advantage of this exceptional public park.
