LeBauer Park

In 2013, the estate of Carolyn and Maurice LeBauer gifted the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro with a bequest of $10 million to create a new urban park for “the benefit and enjoyment of the general population of Greensboro, particularly children and their families.”

Located on a 4.5-acre site in the heart of downtown Greensboro, LeBauer Park realigns key downtown streets to unite surrounding civic and arts institutions and has become the heart of a new cultural arts district. Thoughtful design is punctuated by more than an acre of gardens planted with 350 trees and over 60 different species of ornamental plants, which includes classic Southern garden plants as well as hardy native selections.

The central feature of the park is the concert lawn and performance pavilion that is crowned with a permanent installation from renowned Boston-based artist Janet Echelman. The actively programmed park also includes a dog park, reading room, games area, croquet lawn and putting green. An interactive water feature plaza functions as the informal gateway into a 15,000 SF children’s play area that includes a variety of custom elements, including climbing wall, topographic landforms, a sand play area and a large hill with slides. In addition to several food and beverage kiosks, LeBauer park also accommodates the wide range of festivals and other civic-scale events from the great Greensboro area.

LeBauer park offers a rich array of exceptional spaces and activities for the community to connect and celebrate. The park has become a must-see destination, attracting locals and visitors with its educational opportunities, cultural events and daily programming.
