Lindley Park, Greensboro, NC real estate informatinLindley Park Recreation Center is part of the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department and features many activities.  It offers after-school care, various community meetings and a multitude of classes and sports activities.  It also has a public olympic-size swimming pool.  Lindley Park is also home to The Greensboro Arboretum, a beautiful 17-acre park with fountains, arbors, bridges and paved walkways.  The Greensboro Arboretum was created to showcase the wide variety of breath-taking flora which can be grown in the Triad.   

Lindley Park Neighborhood Association (LPNA) is a vibrant organization that sponsors Easter Egg hunts, Spring Flings and Fall Festivals, along with many other activities.  Each December, the neighborhood glows with over 1,200 luminaries to celebrate the holiday season.  The LPNA is also active in preserving the neighborhood. Lindley Park even has a fan page on Facebook.

Lindley Park has a history that stretches back over 100 years.  In 1902, John Van Lindley, a businessman known for engaging in a variety of ventures, donated 60 acres of land to create a recreational area.  It included a manmade lake and an amusement park.  15 years later, when the park closed, the city of Greensboro stepped in to develop the area into a planned community.  Lindley Park residents have been enjoying living in this beautiful, tree-lined neighborhood every since.
