It's not clearly marked so I was just running around to dead ends at some spots. But very easy run once you know the trail.

This looks like it would be a beautiful Walk in the spring. The trail is not clearly marked to go in a circle. I’m December there were no flowers or birds, but the squirrels were precious!

very nice pocket park with easy loop; the back area is buggy due to the swampy nature of that part of the trail. Beautiful foliage and a public restroom are special added amenities.

Very easy stroll through a botanical garden with various flowering shrubs, plants, and trees.

It's nice to see the types of vegetation they have and a better place to go walking than on a regular sidewalk but it's only relaxing of there aren't a lot of other people there. Also this site says it's dog friendly but it is not. Dogs are not allowed even on leashes.

I'm starting "my peak challange, " and this was a very baseline start. really enjoyed it. The directions on this app are off... they lead to an adjacent neighborhood, so double check.

This is a beautiful respite just to get away from the busyness of life. I am impressed with the variety of plants. There were lots of people there which actually added to the experience. The gardens are wheelchair accessible.

This is a wonderful place for an afternoon in a beautifully maintained garden and trail just outside downtown Spartanburg.
