GO TO PARK

Solar Eclipse Viewing

Solar Eclipse Viewing

Although Haw River State Park isn't in the direct path of the full solar eclipse, we will still experience 93% obscuartion, meaning the skies won't go completely dark, but close.  Join park staff for a viewing in our recreation field at the Iron Ore Belt Access located at 6068 N. Church Street, Greensboro, NC.  We will have free safe viewing glasses available for the first 70 participants.  We'll also have a few fun solar eclipse crafts for kids and kids at heart.
