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.

I like to go and see what animals I can see and sit back and relax. Great place to take a lunch or read a book.

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

Expecting more the reviews were good, it's is not much different than your standard park with a walking trail. Many plants were dead or in bad shape, few markers that told you what kind of plants or flowers you were looking at. Some of the ponds looked ideal for mosquitos.

I took my HS Junior to Hatcher for spring flower pics in her prom dress. Such beautiful, shaded backgrounds of many flora types. We are blessed to have such a beautiful, tranquil garden so near to us.
