Brookgreen Gardens

Set on a 300-acre parcel in the heart of a 9,100-acre preserve along the South Carolina coast, Brookgreen Gardens is a beautiful sculpture garden with a wildlife sanctuary, creek excursions, back road tours and seasonal events. Comprised of four former rice plantations, Brookgreen was the first public sculpture garden built in the U.S. The garden was opened to the public in 1931 by its founders Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. Mrs. Huntington's works are featured along with other prominent American sculptors.

Thre's so much to explore! From pontoon boat cruises and overland excursions on the Trekker to engaging animal programs and a new butterfly house - there is always something new and exciting at Brookgreen Gardens. This National Historic Landmark is home to the only accredited zoo on the Carolinas coast and one of the most significant figurative sculpture collections in the world. Admission ticket is good for seven consecutive days.
