The impressive botanical gardens around the world (P.86) - Cator Woolford Gardens (USA): Atlanta's magnificent gardens

22-03-2021

(WorldKings.org) Nestled on 39 acres of mature hardwood forest, Cator Woolford Gardens at the Frazer Center is located on one of the few remaining intact historic estates in Metropolitan Atlanta, just a few miles from the heart of downtown.

One of Atlanta’s most meaningful hidden gems, the Cator Woolford Gardens provides a beautiful event space for life’s special moments — with all proceeds directly supporting the Frazer Center’s mission of fostering inclusion and celebrating diversity in the Atlanta community.

An Extraordinary Beginning

Nestled in the heart of Druid Hills, the Cator Woolford Gardens offers a rare glimpse into 1920s Atlanta. This lush oasis is one of the few viable estates still standing in the city today, and is virtually untouched by city sprawl. Once the home of Cator Woolford, a principal founder of what is now known as Equifax, the Italian-style gardens serve as a wedding and event venue infused with decades of classic beauty and Southern charm.

They were brought back to life in 1996 and are currently maintained by The Frazer Center as a special oasis in the city to be enjoyed by the neighborhood. The Gardens also serve as a special event venue and proceeds from all rentals directly support the programs for children and adults at the Frazer Center.

Cator Woolford Gardens at the Frazer Center provides the perfect setting for weddings, parties, reunions and other special events and also offers a lovely alternative for corporate functions like conferences, luncheons, fundraisers, and social retreats. Increasingly, the film industry has discovered the Gardens to be a great setting for movie and television shoots, as well.

A Meaningful Mission

When you host an event at the Cator Woolford Gardens, all proceeds support the Frazer Center, a nonprofit on the same estate grounds. There, people of all levels of ability and disability come together to gather, learn, and flourish in an inclusive community.
