Frequented by all the families of the region from the 1950s through the late 1980s, the historic Radium Springs, which at one time featured a fabulous restaurant, is only a shadow of its former self. Still a great historic site where you can see the...More

Step back in time and imagine you're enjoying a day of swimming in the 1920s. The blue hole of the spring is incredibly clear and full of fish. Very relaxing. The gardens look like they would be very pretty when the plants are blooming.

This is a BEAUTIFUL place to take pictures and is a hidden treasure in Dougherty County. This is known as one of the 7(state's) natural wonders. I rated it a 3 because there are no other "activities" near except seeing the springs.

Local authorities have done a good job with repairs following recent bad weather. Nice place for a picnic, or to let the kids play, or take pictures. The park and waterside walkways close at dark and its relatively safe. Have to admit the gnats are...More

Radium Springs was high on my list of things to see in Georgia. However, it was a disappointment. The springs was there but a large portion was full of plant matter. The grounds were not beautiful at all. It took longer to find it than...More

We were there on a Saturday and the only people there. Very interesting history and had to be the place to go in its day. The clear water and all the fish were fascinating. A real hidden gem
