A Walk Through Savannah Botanical Gardens

Designed in the late 1980s, Savannah’s Botanical Gardens include both formal and natural spaces maintained by the Savannah Area Council of Garden Clubs. To get there, cross the Talmadge Bridge into Savannah and take Oglethorpe across town to Truman Parkway. Exit on Eisenhower Drive to find rose gardens, an herb parterre, vegetable garden, camellia collection, fern garden and native plant collection. Admission is free, and the gardens are open every day for self-guided tours. You’ll also want to see the historic Reinhard House on the grounds, a rare survivor of Savannah’s 19th century architecture moved to the gardens in 1990 to escape demolition, and leave some time for reflection in several private spots among the trees.
