Walk comfortable trails through a natural setting close to the city of Spartanburg! Through each season the display and beauty of flowering plants and the sound of waterfalls has been crafted to appease our senses. Sit in a comfortable cove in the sun or shade. Feel the caring and constructive creative design that makes Hatcher a favorite walking and meditative... More

Perfect for a walk in nature, or for pictures or even a picnic. Has a paved pathway. Very beautiful and kept up well. Great for couples or families to visit

Hatcher Gardens has many water features, numerous plant species, and incredible wildlife, all in the middle of the city. It's a great place to go for a stroll, a picnic, read a book, or just to relax. It's a fairly small area, but there's lots to see. On our last visit, we were able to get within a couple of... More

Small, not able to drive thru, must park and walk. Can see most form entrance, free and the price is right.

We stopped here en route to Kiawah Island as a rest stop. Nice variety of walkways both paved and unpaved. A few of the natural walkways weren't kept up well which was disappointing. Saw a pretty large snake near the entrance which scared us to death. Wasn't sure what type...didn't really care. Wish it would have identified the vegetation better,... More

Nice place to spend an afternoon if you are in Spartanburg. Walking trails, lots of water, restrooms. Parking a little tight.

A lovely, quiet spot in the middle of town. There are lots of picnic spots in the preserve, and lots of birds singing their hearts out for you. Flowers will bloom off and on all summer, but winter and fall are nice here too. It is well maintained. I used the walking paths to help me destress from work. Lovely... More

10 acres of gorgeous woodlands, ponds, waterfalls, gazebos, etc. There was so much to see...be sure to wear your walking shoes. Nicely paved main trail and off the main path gravel trails take you all around this beautiful garden.

The emphasis is not on garden but on woodland preserve. They have done a miraculous job of turning a litter-strewn gully into a nature preserve, pervaded by silence among peaceful walks, streams and ponds. There are numerous spots to sit and contemplate on the 8-acre property.

This park is open to the public and is a treasure in Spartanburg. Beautiful walking trails and all kinds of plants and flowers to enjoy. This park is open year round and is worth your attention. Go see it for yourself!
