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.

My wedding was moved around quite a lot due to COVID but it turned out even better than I had anticipated. I was supposed to get married in the spring where I anticipated lots of blooms in the garden and luscious greenery. I ended up getting married in early November though and the gardens couldn’t have looked more beautiful! My guests were raving about how beautiful it was outside with the trees changing with the season and there were still flowers in bloom! I worked with Meghann who did a fabulous job of showing us around and answering our questions. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Atlanta!Sent on 11/18/2020

Amazing - best decision we made!
Oh where to begin with the fabulous team at Cator Woolford. Everyone we worked with went above and beyond for us. When it was pouring rain the morning of our wedding everyone sprung into action to make our "plan B" just as beautiful as our original location. I also love that they give back to the Frazier Center.Sent on 02/17/2020

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
