“Unique Garden Experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Visiting Hatcher Gardens and Woodland Preserve is visiting a relaxing, inspiring, restful attraction within the city and seeing the most beautiful aspects of nature. Local plants are blooming, can be photographed or purchase to take home. A wonderful director, Robin Vollmer, and her horticulturist, Jeff, can enhance your visit, help you plan a garden party, or even help you celebrate a special occasion. This is a must see when visiting Spartanburg, South Carolina.

“Nice place for the family”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

It's a great place for the kids to explore and a good place for exercise. It's a beautiful garden with something to see year round.

“Favorite place to take small children”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Hatcher Gardens is a wonderful, FREE little park right off Reidville Rd. My mother and I always used to go there after church for picnics. The little streams, gazebos, paths, ponds, animals (birds, fish and squirrels) and plants are all packed into a restful, beautiful area. It is wheelchair accessible for the most part.

“Such a peaceful place tucked away!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

No admission charge just donations and it was just so peaceful and enjoyable. We had a photographer take a pic of my grans and the blackeyed susans were just the perfect backdrop. Then they ran loose in the gardens and thoroughly enjoyed the paths and water features. My favorite is the caterpillar. We'll be back!

“Respite from the heat and hectic day”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a relaxing and beautiful location that lets you unwind from the hectic day. With short, easy trails to stroll through trees, hedges, flowers and streams, it is a place that gives a feeling of peacefulness and tranquility. While I wish more things were marked with identification signs, it is still a place to enjoy. On a hot Southern day, here you can find shade and coolness. Best of all, it's free (but donations are appreciated, and help them keep the place up). Highly recommended.
