The most beautiful time of the year is spring when azaleas are in full bloom. Florence’s recreation and natural gardens can be enjoyed year round, and if you take a trip to Timrod Park during the spring you’ll see hundreds of azaleas in various shades of pink, purple, and white.
To complement the plentiful array of flowers are the many huge pines, live oaks, and magnolias that are commonly draped with Spanish moss. The City of Florence alone operates and maintains 16 neighborhood park sites.
