What a refreshing and wonderful outdoor sanctuary right in the middle of Spartanburg neighborhoods. The plants are well marked and maintained. Many volunteers keep the grounds clean and nice.

I was very fortunate to meet Mr. Hatcher whilst he was still alive (20+ years ago) and loved to help garden. After he passed and it became a Park it only became more established and much more unique.

Hatton Gardens located on the west side of Spartanburg is just beautiful Albreit small. There is a water feature going throughout the property and a beautiful Trail going over bridges that showcase the greenery. A great place for a stroll or a picnic at the picnic tables that are provided!

Decent little place to go for a walk and have a chat. Also seems to be very popular for photography. Makes you forget you are in the idle of the city . Fall is the best time to go. Have been several times now. Would be nice if they charged $1 (honor box) per person so they could better maintain... More

Great place to escape for a picnic lunch, or just to walk around the grounds. Close to downtown and no parking problems.

It has paved paths, but plenty of nature on all sides. Has benches, gazebo, wooden bridges, bird feeders, water areas, and some art work. Also has nice parking lot.

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.
