If you are bringing your team to play at the Bryan Park Soccer Complex it’s more than likely that you’ll be staying in a hotel in Greensboro. So, we have put together some things to do and places to eat on the north half of the city that will keep you and your team close to the tournament’s activities.


Things to Do

Greensboro Science Center

The Greensboro Science Center, just seven miles from the Bryan Park Soccer Complex, is a zoo, aquarium, and science center all in one.

The Animal Discovery Zoological Park is home to meerkats, black howler monkeys, and Nile crocodiles; not to mention tigers. The Museum includes a dinosaur gallery and “touch labs” with live snakes and lizards. The Carolina SciQuarium features African penguins, fishing cats, mata matas, and moray eels. Don’t miss the otters, stingrays, and sharks, either.

As part of a 20-million-dollar makeover in 2011, the zoo opened Time Warner Cable’s Extreme Weather Gallery and the HealthQuest. A new aquarium expansion debuted in 2017. In The OmniSphere Theater you’ll experience everything from lustrous stars to breathtaking coral reefs all in stunning 3D. 4301 Lawndale Dr, Greensboro, NC 27455


Sky Wild

Sky Wild is a treetop adventure located at the Greensboro Science Center, offering seven different courses with 60 overall challenges.

Their mission is to complement the mission of the Center, so it was constructed to help adventurers get into the heads of animals by exhibiting some of their behaviors. Let out your wild side and monkey around! 4301 Lawndale Dr, Greensboro, NC 27455

The Greensboro Children’s Museum, only nine miles from the Bryan Park Soccer Complex, was chosen as one of the top 50 children’s museums in the U.S. in 2004. Since winning that award they’ve doubled down on their mission “to engage children in play that encourages them to practice and build foundational skills.”

The 37,000-square-foot facility includes over 20 permanent exhibits that aim to stimulate your child’s imagination. The museum prides itself on being a hands-on, interactive museum that inspires learning through play.

In the Market Shop exhibit, kids push kid-sized carts around, ringing up customer sales on real cash registers. At Pizza Pan young kid chefs don aprons and chef’s hats, take orders, make pizza, and serve them up fresh from the oven. In the Post Office exhibit kid postmasters sort mail and deliver packages to stores around Main Street in a post office truck. Our Town Theater is where thespians of all ages take stage in costume, put on a puppet show, or just play in the light and sound booth. 220 N Church St, Greensboro, NC 27401


Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park

It’s a bit far from the Bryan Park Soccer Complex, but if you have time to drive 15 miles for an afternoon of fun, then add the Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe water park to your list. When you think summer in North Carolina, think Wet ‘n Wild. It’s the biggest water park in North and South Carolina.

Soak up the sun and get soaked on all 36 of the park’s water rides. If you want some excitement, slip and slide down the tall, fast water slides. Looking to unwind? Float down the Lazee River and let the current take you away. There’s something to do for everyone at Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park. 3910 S Holden Rd, Greensboro, NC 27406
