Brookgreen Gardens is probably one of the oldest attractions in the "Grand Strand" area, but as their motto implies, it's always changing and always an amazing place to visit. It's not just your 'Grandmother's Sculpture Garden.' There is plenty to see and do in this...More

We have been here many times and it is always beautiful, peaceful. Around every corner you find something blooming, a statue tucked into the greenery. Attention to detail is amazing.

We really enjoyed the zoo and the exhibits as well as the Lowcountry center with crafts for the kids. We loved it so much we bought a family membership because we know we will always visit when in the area.

We had a great afternoon strolling the gardens. They have done a really nice job of incorporating kid friendly things to see. My 10 year old son loved seeing the 10 lego sculptures scattered in the native animal zoo.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children in addition to the garden admission and must be purchased at the Wall Lowcountry Center at least 10 minutes before tour time. Excursions last approximately 50 minutes.

The Lego exhibit is not here this year, but we have "Ribbit the Exhibit" until July 9th. It's a charming exhibit of larger than life copper frog sculptures. Our guests have really been enjoying it!

Is the whole area wheelchair accessible including the boat ride?

Hi there, Yes most of the gardens are wheelchair accessible and the boat ride is also. Brookgreen has three wheel adult "strollers" that may be easier to push through some of the garden pathways.
