Riverbanks Botanical Garden opened on June 10, 1995 on one of the most beautiful natural sites in South Carolina. Scenic river views, spectacular valley overlooks, and a walled garden ablaze with color are but a few of the attractions that greet visitors to one the nation's best botanical gardens, located on the west bank of the Saluda River across from Riverbanks Zoo. The Botanical Garden��_��__s site features three distinct topographies: the flood plain valley, the valley slopes and the uplands. In addition to its natural beauty, the site has significant historical value as the location of one of South Carolina��_��__s first water-powered textile mills.
