What a great day to stroll through the sculpture gardens at Brookgreen Gardens. Incredible sculpture in bronze, aluminum and stone all with easy to read inscriptions about their artists and their meanings. An easy walkabout on your own on the paved pathways or take a guided tour. Shuttles are available to get you to the starting points further out. We... More

This was my first time at the Gardens and I was blown away with how beautiful it was and this was at night. There were so many lights! I cannot wait to go back again. I would also like to go during the day as well. I am pretty sure I could spend all day here. This is a great... More

Flowers, live oaks, expansive marshes, fountains, sculptures, and leisure walks. Combine all of this and with the beauty and wonders of nature, bright blue skies, and your day is a joy!

This is our second trip to Brookgreen Gardens. March is a great month to visit Brookgreen. The azaleas were in full bloom and it wasn't nearly as hot as it can get in the summer. There are numerous gardens and the beautiful sculptures range in size from the smallest to some of the largest we've ever seen. There are nature... More

We arrived too late to get in, so we opted to stay in the area and see it the next day. It is a beautiful place to visit with lots of garden architecture, sculptures, and vistas. Really enjoyed our visit. Thank you!

What a beautiful place to visit for the sculptures scattered in wonderful landscaping. We have returned here many years on our spring break. The history of rice production is also interesting and it is right across from Huntington Beach State Park, another plantation area.

We went specifically for the zoo and it was amazing. It was different to see "zoo" animals that were native to the land. Beautiful and very scenic.

Brookgreen Gardens has a lot to offer. A huge sculpture garden, van tour, boat ride and native animal zoo. The ticket is good for 6 days, so visit early as you may want to go back!

Fantastic array of large and small sculptures, mainly of animals. Flora was only okay. The nature trail was fun- especially around 2-3 PM when feeding time brings out all the native species. Lots of walking - definitely get your 10k steps in here!
