Radium Springs Botanical Garden

Historic Interpretive & Wayfinding Program

One of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia’, Radium Springs is the largest natural spring in Georgia.  With a year-round temperature of 68 degrees, the sapphire-blue water emerges from a limestone aquifer ‘boil’ adjacent to the Flint River a few miles south of the city of Albany. The spring and its associated creek form part of a spectacular 95 acre cypress swamp landscape which includes gazebo ruins, stone walls, promenade walkways and balustrade railings; all part of the remnants of the Radium Springs Casino and swimming area.  The site was also used by Native Americans before the birth of Christ and is habitat for endangered species of striped bass.

In coordination with the master plan for the 95 acre park by AMEC E & I is a program of intereptive signage and wayfinding for the extensive network of themed garden areas including the Casino Garden, Native Springs Garden, Backyard Garden, Shade Garden, Secret Garden, Bird Garden and Butterfly Garden.
