This a a lovely and well tended Preserve! The area is entered off of a busy street but after a few steps you no longer hear the city sounds. If you need a break from cars, noise and stress this is a most accessible respite! Beautiful trees, flowers, birds and ponds await.

charming little stroll with creeks and waterfalls. The grounds are well kept and pretty. Not hard to find and easy parking. Lots of benches to stop and enjoy the view.

Lovely place built by an extraordinary man. I'm so glad his legacy will live on. It is wonderful to stroll through the garden. There is always something new to see. I love learning about the native plants.

Amazing plant and animal life tucked away for privacy close to town. Great place to hang out, enjoy nature and walk and take pictures with your best friend or grandchild. Tell 'em the names of the trees like mom told you and you've got signs if you didn't have that privilege. Quiet, serene, tranquil...Enjoy!

This is a wonderful garden that was started by an individual. It's probably quadruple the space it started out as, and the community supports it as well. I have taken guests there, and we all enjoyed the beautiful work that has been done in this special space.

Wonderful place to take a walk and get grand ideas for landscaping. Especially helpful if you go to one of the large plant sales they have a couple of times a year and staffed by people who know plants. The paths are in great shape for anybody who might be challenged on rough terrain. Plenty of places throughout to sit.... More

We were visiting friends recently and they took us to this beautiful place. There was so much to see and enjoy. We took a wealth of photos! The day was perfect for a walk in the woods and this woodland preserve is one of the best.

Whenever it is a pretty day out and there is not much to do , I take the kids to Hatcher Garden and let them run free. It is fast, quiet and a great place to take pictures and enjoy nature.

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
