Very disappointed in the gardens. Needed a lot of cleanup, very surprised. The doll house was closed so didn't get a chance to visit.

These gardens are beautiful...the doll house and the thoroughbred house house are extras to see. Plus this is all free. Coming thru Aiken area you must stop and visit this gem in the middle of the town.

A beautiful park in the middle of Aiken with quiet trails and unique shrubs. Christmas is the time to go with the gardens lit up in a beautiful array of figures and trails

A place to return to again and again. - And a place to remember. The gardens are a gentle trip back in time. And yet they offer peace and welcome happy thoughts when you need to refresh yourself with reminders that your life and problems...More
