Nestled on 39 acres of mature hardwoods, the Cator Woolford Gardens are situated on one of the few remaining intact historic estates in Metropolitan Atlanta and are located just a few miles from the heart of downtown.
The Gardens were originally created for Cator Woolford, one of the principle founders of Retail Credit Company (now Equifax, Inc.) and were redesigned in 1996 as a series of outdoor "rooms." Changing with the seasons, the gardens and forest are filled with dogwoods, roses, narcissi,rhododendrons, laurel, daffodils and azaleas, some of which are original to the estate.
Your guests will easily imagine themselves in a time gone by in this unique Southern oasis so convenient to the heart of the city. The Italian-styled pavilion accompanied by an elegant 30' x 45' white tent creates a truly enchanting and unique setting for any event - corporate retreat, conference, fundraiser, movie shoot or wedding. In addition, with a 3,000 square foot indoor space featuring vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows as part of the gardens rental, only your imagination limits the type of event the gardens can accommodate.
While a source of enjoyment for the community, the Gardens are an important source of revenue for The Frazer Center, a not-for-profit organization. For over sixty years, The Frazer Center has provided exceptional services to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and adults with developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, down syndrome, sickle cell anemia, autism spectrum disorders and other genetic disorders.

Perfect Secret Garden
We did the elopement package for a midday wedding and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue. We felt like it was our own secret garden. Christina was incredible to work with answering any question. When we arrived on the AM of, it was so easy to get ready and have the ceremony.Sent on 04/29/2019

Christina and her team made the entire process super easy and super fun! The venue is stunning, crazy value for the investment. The tables and chairs, tents, set up, break down, sound equipment, security, and more, all provided. The venue is completely disabled accessible, no small feat for an outdoor garden and pavilion. Planning meetings were arranged for us, recommendations for caterers, florists, and more - and the best part, the net proceeds from booking the venue go to the amazing Frazer Center, which provides educational opportunities to young students with challenges, among others. Five plus-plus-plus stars! Thank you Cator Woodford Gardens at the Frazer Center!Sent on 11/11/2017
