Radium Springs Gardens

Explore a natural wonder in the state of Georgia that was once one of its most famous resort areas. Find out what a radium spring is.

Radium Springs Gardens is a very interesting spot on the east side of the Flint River, in the city of Albany. Swimming is no longer allowed in the spring, but it was a popular bathing spot for many years. Discover a green area with both indigenous and exotic vegetation, lovely sidewalks and gazebos. Find out about the story behind this renowned spring that pumps 68 F (20 C) water from an underground cave.

Creek Indians once lived, hunted and fished in the area surrounding the radium springs. Visit this historic site of Albany that was previously called Blue Spring and was a very popular swimming hole and fishing spot for generations. Find out how an unexpected discovery in the early 20th century turned the area into a famous recreational resort. Testing revealed that the water flowing from the spring contained traces of radium, an extremely rare chemical element. After the discovery, a major resort was developed and opened in 1927, becoming an instant success. It included a casino, bathhouses, a hotel, walking trails and one of the finest golf courses in Georgia. Walk through a courtyard where the former Radium Springs Casino once stood and see the ruins of the notable resort. 

In 2010 Radium Spring Gardens was converted into an interesting and beautiful historic site and botanical garden. Choose from the different paths and explore the site, enjoy the picnic area and see the casino gardens and the lovely restored terrace. You’ll find that the water of the spring is lovely and blue in some parts and covered in green plant life in others. Tropical Storm Alberto affected the spring area in 1994 and flooding in 1998 caused even heavier damage. 

Find Radium Spring Gardens about a 10-minute drive south of Albany. The park is free to enter and has free parking available. Be aware that the site is usually closed to the public on Mondays.
