We came during late fall – maybe not the best time if you like to see flowers but we still loved the place. First of all it was almost empty and it feels like you are there all by yourself (you can’t hear cars or any other city noise even though you are in the middle of Spartanburg). Secondly, this...

I am a native of Spartanburg and must have driven by Hatcher Gardens thousands of times but never visited until the memorial service for a friend's son was held there. It was the most perfect place for that and the flowers were blooming and many people were there for other things that day. I saw a photographer doing a bridal... More

Beautiful garden! Loved all the places. Went earlier in the summer and then just went on Labor Day and my boyfriend proposed! This location will always have a special place in my heart. It is very nice and I would recommend visiting if you're ever in the area.

A nice, quiet little meandering path through a beautiful natural woodland preserve. Take a book, sit and reflect, or meet up for a picnic lunch with a friend.

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.
