A nice botanical garden right in the middle of Spartanburg. Was an enjoyable stroll after riding several hours in a car earlier in the day.

This place is great. There's lots of plaques showing info about the huge variety of plants throughout the garden. You can really learn a lot here or just take some nice pictures.

Just discovered this gem in the city. Lovely, peaceful with loads of places to sit and enjoy. They ask for a donation, make one, it is well worth it.

It's a wonder cf up backdrop. You won't be... More

This was a nice place to go walk around while in Spartanburg. It's free, but they do have a donation stand to help keep things going. It's a neat history lesson as well!

This is FREE to everyone BUT there is a donation jar at the entrance so please donate some and buy a plant or two at the end. There's plenty of benches and gazebos that you could take a picnic basket with you and enjoy the quiet and beautiful landscape! Give it a go.

Hatcher Garden, a beautiful, woodland public garden in the heart of the city of Spartanburg. It displays seasonal flowers, foliage and trees along soothing ponds and streams. The Garden is free to public and open every day of the year from dawn to dusk. Its great place for a casual stroll and wonderful spot for picnic.

Very nice place for a free relaxing walk in the midst of an urban area. Well kept trails and informative signs explaining the flora are a great touch. Stop by for a quick stroll or bring a book and read while sitting by the pond.

Our hotel sent us here and it was a very neat outdoor preserve. It's free and you can leave a donation.
