A dog park, tennis courts, walking trails, a pool, a golf course, Tanglewood offers so many things to do that it’s no surprise it was voted favorite park. Located in Clemmons, it’s close enough for anyone living in and near Winston-Salem to visit and spend a few hours — or the entire day. There’s something for everyone, especially considering there are more than 1,000 acres worth exploring.
“The 1,100 acres that is now Tanglewood Park boasts facility rentals, two championship golf courses, a bed and breakfast, an RV campground, horse stables, fishing on two stocked lakes, pedal boats, tennis courts, an Aquatic Center, a BMX track, and various trail systems,” says Jessica Sanders, marketing and events manager with the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation department.
The Tanglewood Park Arboretum and Rose Garden showcases plant and flower species that are native to Forsyth County, and spotting wildlife — including a large array of birds and deer — is often a guarantee.
But the park’s backstory makes it equally unique to the region, Sanders says.
“[Tanglewood Park was] previously owned by William Neal Reynolds, brother of tobacco tycoon R.J. Reynolds,” she says. “[It’s] rich in history — and southern charm.”
