Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl
This 40-acre garden is home to more than 3,000 native and hybrid azaleas, which explode into a colorful palette of pinks, reds, lavendars and whites each Spring. Additional plantings include 2,000 trees and shrubs that provide an array of foliage and blooms throughout the year. With wide walking paths that criss-cross the hillside gardens, the Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl is a delightful spot for a leisurely stroll in any season. A gazebo overlooking Falls Creek Lake is an ideal resting spot from which to drink in the picture-postcard beauty.
The Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl is named in memory of brothers Fuller Earle Callaway Sr., and Ely Reeves Callaway Sr. Fuller Callaway was the father of Gardens founder Cason J. Callaway. Ely Callaway was the father of the late Ely Callaway Jr., founder of Callaway Golf. Ely Callaway Jr. funded the garden with a $3 million donation, and it opened in 1999.
