Hopelands Gardens

This 14-acre garden dazzles with camellias, azaleas, live oaks, wisteria, dogwood, crepe myrtle and other Southern favorites for year-round beauty. Two wetlands ponds have boardwalks for close-up views of Chinese elms, cypress and other native plants. A touch-and-scent trail, with plaques in Braille, lead visually impaired nature lovers to new discoveries. The garden also is a designated SC National Heritage Corridor Discovery Site. The Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame & Museum is on the property. Concerts are held on Monday evenings May-August at 7 pm. In December, the garden puts on a dazzling Christmas light spectacle called Christmas In Hopelands.
