Park Pages


Peabody Park is 34 acre tract of land at the northern end of UNCG's campus. It contains older growth forest, grassy areas, and several streams. While you can't say it is undisturbed, it is an important refuge for many forms of fora and fauna, as well as a great opportunity for outdoor learning. In the park you might see a 100 ft tall Yellow Poplar, a blue tailed skink, a rare native stand of horsetails, 500 million year old bedrock, or a crayfish in the stream.
