I love Hatcher Garden. A wonderful place to visit year round. A good place to teach kids about nature. I really appreciate the plant sale in the spring. My flower garden is looking more beautiful every year thanks to you.

If you just need a moment of quiet time and reflection, this is the place. easy walking trail, and a picnic lunch will make your day. Easy for kids and seniors. Places to sit along the walk, and in spring, its beautiful with flowering foliage. No charge to enter, but they do take donations for the upkeep.

Enjoy a picnic in this Beautiful garden. They also allow weddings here as well as graduation pictures. On the weekends they sell flowers and plants from the garden. There is water that runs through the whole park.

This is one of my favorite places but the visit now is not so good. The lack of rain has had an effect on the beauty of this place. Just about no blooming flowers. However, it is still a good walking area and a place for family and couples. We had some pictures taken and believe they will still look... More

The gardens has grown and developed since my last visit in 2014. The garden is a lovely place for a walk, a romantic lunch or a peaceful end escape. Short pathway to walk. Great place for peace and time with nature.

Hatcher Gardens is one of my favorite places to when I feel I need to relax and take a good deep breath of fresh air. It's in the city not far from town,shopping and an interstate. It's very serene.

Hatcher Gardens is a real gem. We visit there often especially during change of season. There is always plenty to see of the Spartanburg nature and birds that frequent the gardens
