My wife and I got married here 10 years ago. It is a beautiful outdoor setting and very inexpensive. The staff was a joy to work with and the grounds were perfect for our special day.

This is a lovely place to walk, with scenery everywhere. There are places to sit down where it's quiet and have a picnic lunch. There's always something blooming for the season. Waterfall and pond with some turtles to watch. The walk is easy and enjoyable....More

This diverse paved trail garden is best described as a preserve. It truly preserves the local habitat while displaying some other garden gems from around the world. It has been free but just went through some major upgrades to the entrance area. I've never seen...More

Wife and I visit many gardens when we travel. This is one of the best small town gardens we have visited. Before going there, I wondered whether it would be worth it in the fall, i.e. past prime summertime display. So we didn't get there...More

What a wonderful place to visit to just unwind. The colors are beautiful this time of year. It is an oasis in the middle of town. Have purchased several plants to add to my yard.

These are some of the most beautiful gardens that you can see anywhere in the area. They also sell plants there and unless there has been a recent change they have a sale every year.

This a real hometown treasure. The garden is an outdoor sanctuary. I have had many wonderful memories sharing this outdoor area with out of town guests. Bring a picnic and just enjoy nature. There is no charge.

Hatcher Garden has activities all the time. I would suggest going to their website to find out what's going on. I think they have a spring plant sale coming up soon.
