Hatcher Garden and Your Health

On May 18th, 2018, Hatcher Garden was named Best Local Tourist Attraction for the second year in a row by the Herald-Journal's Best of the Best in Spartanburg (pictured right). We would like to thank everyone who voted for us!

Parking Lot Expansion

Phase III of the parking lot expansion has begun with the widening of the main road entrance to three lanes (one lane in, two lanes out) and the expansion of the parking lot where the former house was. Also planned is a circle turnaround/drop off. Work is expected to be completed shortly before Twilight in the Garden.

NBC News recently had a story on ecotherapy, where a doctor prescribed taking a walk in nature instead of pills to deal with some cases of anxiety and depression. Ecotherapy combines nature walks with therapy sessions and simple exercises. Patients are instructed to focus on three key elements:
   - The sounds of chirping birds
   - The visuals of trees and leaves
   - The sound of streams or rivers
Hatcher Garden has all these things! Come take a walk in Hatcher Garden especailly in these stressful days! To see more information on the NBC News story, click here.
