- The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, which is located in Ginter Park, features more than 50 acres of gardens, including a rose garden, a Japanese garden, and a children’s garden.
- Ginter Park is home to several historic landmarks, including the Ginter Park Baptist Church, which was built in 1923 and features a beautiful stained glass window designed by Tiffany Studios.
- The Ginter Park neighborhood is known for its strong sense of community, with many neighborhood events and activities throughout the year, including an annual Fourth of July parade.
