Tickets include admission to the 450 acres of gardens and the zoo and are good for seven consecutive days. Free with admission are the Children’s Discovery Room and Brookgreen Detective booklets where kids investigate and explore, following clues, sketching, and even playing word games. Kids love the daily animal program Mother Nature's Cafe, when they watch an interpreter feed the animals a snack and Meet the Animals, where an interpreter introduces live animals in an interactive setting. A Garden Room for Children stirs young imaginations. There are wooded nooks to hide in, things to climb on, and sculptural animals to marvel at. There is even an elevated place for parents to sit and watch the magic of children learning as they play. Other free daily programs and tours are the Huntington Sculpture Garden Tour, several indoor exhibits, and a self-guided tour of four archaeological sites. Boat rides, back road excursions, and butterfly house tours are available for an additional fee.Close

You can come back several days on one pass you bought. You need to go more than one day to see everything!!! If you are into sculptures of all kinds, lakes, ponds, magnificent huge trees, fountains, flowers, children's sections, history on and on this is a must see. We go every year and we find something we haven't seen before. Wheelchair friendly, friendly knowledgeable people. One statue especially is special to me, God's hand is flying a man Home. OMG
Murrells Inlet, South Carolina
Gardens are well taken care of. It's a beautiful place to walk around. Your one admission ticket is good all week.
The park is large and you can walk comfortably on paved walkways. Part of the park did experience excess water from all the rains but we got to see what we wanted. The sculptures are interesting and the trees on the old plantation are just enormous. We walked pretty much through the whole park and finished at the gift shop. The best part was the aviary where we were able to get some great bird pictures. You can almost walk to within a couple of feet and get some closeup portraits.
Crystal Beach, Canada
This walking tour of gardens, sculptures, trees and domestic zoo set on what used to 4 rice field plantations was very relaxing. Having gone in February there was very little colour, however, the grounds are well maintained with many water features. We spent over 3 hours and I think if we would have tried to explore every path another 3 would have been possible. When you purchase your admission ticket it is good for 7 consecutive days, great if you are staying nearby and wish to visit again or split your day up. It is just a short drive from Myrtle Beach. Would definitely visit again if in the area.
