Named One of the Top Ten Public Gardens in the United States by TripAdvisor! Young visitors love the Enchanted Storybook Forest, a collection of storybook playhouses based on a classic children’s story or nursery rhyme. It has fun interactive elements such as swings, climbing walls, monkey bars and more. Just for kids is the Children’s Discovery Room and the Brookgreen Detectives booklet that gives kids an adventure by following clues, making observations, sketching drawings, and even playing word games. When completed, they turn in the booklet and receive a Brookgreen Detectives sticker and prize!

Brookgreen Gardens will host 12 larger-than-life LEGO® brick sculpture installations in its Native Wildlife Zoo from April 8 – September 5, 2016. Created by Sean Kenney, renowned artist and children's author, "Nature Connects" is an award-winning exhibit currently touring the country. Made from almost 400,000 LEGO® bricks, the sculptures bring nature to life with a 6-foot tall hummingbird hovering over a trumpet flower, a deer family made from 48,000 bricks, a giant tortoise, a 7-foot long giant dragonfly, and more. The exhibit will be open daily and is included in garden admission.

Kids' also love the daily animal programs Mother Nature's Cafe, where they observe the animals as an interpreter feeds the animals a snack and the interactive Meet the Animals program. We have 'A Garden Room for Children' that stirs young imaginations with displays of plants and sculpture. 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.

Seasonal favorite is the Butterfly House open daily April - October where hundreds of butterflies soar through the air. Tickets are $3 - adults and $2 - children in addition to garden admission for a 30-minute timed visit.

From its beginning in 1931, this non-profit outdoor museum with its majestic oaks and world-renowned sculpture it has been a place to restore your soul and renew your spirit but that’s not all.

"wonderful day"
Reviewed March, 2015
Really informative. Started with a brief video about the gardens. We received a map and a little information from the welcome center. We chose to do a self guided tour but they offer guided tours for no additional fees. With the one day paid admission you can come back within 7 days for free. The boat tour is fun it's about 45 minutes. The "zoo" as animals of the time period. Lots to learn about slavery times. You will enjoy yourself. Sculptures were amazing.

More than meets your eyes. Unbelievable gardens. Animals, statues and great service in the entire place. To really give it justice plan on more than one day to enjoy it all. Don't forget to try the restaurant for unique, awesome food. I highly suggest the lemon blueberry cake as it will melt in your mouth leaving you wanting to take the chef home with you.

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

"Nice place to walk relax see sculptures and some animals. Trees were just starting to bloom."

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.

"Large, relaxing foot tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 08, 2016 NEW

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.
