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.
