Events and Programs

Haw River State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.


Enjoy the arrival of Spring at Haw River State Park’s new day use area with an afternoon of family fun.  Events include an Easter egg hunt for ages 1 to 12 years old (don't forget your baskets), nature crafts, face painting, tree climbing and live animals courtesy of Greensboro Parks & Recreation’s ECO Bus.

Join a park ranger for a leisurely hike along the 1.42 mile Piedmont Loop Trail.  The hike is easy to moderate and takes approximately an hour to complete.  While on the hike, we will take the spur path that leads through the wetlands down to the Haw River.  You are more than welcome to walk with the ranger and learn about the history of the park or strike out on own depending on your walking speed.  This hike is a part of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Hike NC initiative.  For more information, please contact the park office at 336-342-6163.
