Spend the Day with Sunshine & Flowers at the Savannah Botanical Gardens

With so much beauty in the area, you're never at a loss for fun activities. When you're looking to spend some time outside and enjoy nature, head to local gardens. You can walk trails, smell flowers, and attend lovely events. Best of all, everything is near our apartments in Savannah.

See the Reinhard House

Entering the gardens from the parking lot, The Reinhard House is the first structure visitors encounter. The house dates back to 1840s downtown Savannah. It was formerly the family home to William and Anna Reinhard. Then, in 1990 facing demolition, the house got moved to the garden grounds. Today, the house stands in all its beauty and serves as a meeting location for special events and gardening clubs.

Explore the Grounds

There is plenty to peruse in this garden, which has over 10 acres of land. In addition to flower spaces like the perennial gardens, there are also vibrant roses. Visitors can admire the David Austin English Roses or breathe in the Fragrance Rose Garden. What's more, you can check out the vegetable gardens and native plants garden area and trails.
