Fall is in the air. It is such a great time of year to get outside and enjoy all that fall has to offer.
There are so many great things to do during the fall season, but nothing can get you into the fall spirit more than hayrides and pumpkin patches. This October at Tanglewood Stables, you will have the chance to do both. With their pumpkin picking hayrides, you can have a fun fall time experience and make some great memories, too.
Tanglewood Park is a place of such rich history in this community. William Reynolds, RJ Reynolds’ brother, and his wife, Kate, were the owners of Tanglewood. William raised standardbred racehorses and Kate was a horticulture enthusiast. Many of the things you see around Tanglewood Park today are reminders of their legacy and vision. Their home, The Manor House, is now a bed and breakfast in the park, and you can still see the plantings and gardens that Kate began throughout the park.
When you take a pumpkin picking hayride, you are in for a real treat. This scenic hayride through Tanglewood Park will start at The Tanglewood Stables. It will give you the opportunity to enjoy all the stables have to offer. They are home to the horses of Tanglewood, as well as privately boarded horses. Before your hayride, take a walk through the stables to see all the beautiful horses.
Once you board your hayride, you will enjoy a 15- to 20-minute ride through Tanglewood Park to the pumpkin patch.
You will love seeing the beauty of this park, especially in the fall. There is so much beauty and history to take in, and the fall colors will be breathtaking. Once you arrive at the pumpkin patch, everyone gets a chance to pick out a pumpkin to take with them. There will be lots of great photo opportunities throughout the pumpkin patch.
After a great time at the pumpkin patch, you will continue the hayride as you return to the stables.
While you are at the park for your hayride, you can make a day out of it by enjoying everything there is to see and do. In addition to hayrides, the Tanglewood Stables offer 45-minute guided trail rides on the stables horses. This is available to guests age six and older. You will get to see more of the park and experience a unique adventure. Across from the stables, there are walking trails for all to enjoy. If you like bike riding, bring your bikes along, because the trails are great for a bike ride, too. Be sure to bring a picnic with you, so you can have lunch at one of the many picnic shelters throughout the park. There are also two great playgrounds in the park for all of the children in your group to enjoy. Situated along the Yadkin River, the 1170 acres of Tanglewood Park have something for everyone.
