What a surprise to learn about this lovely place as we passed through Sumter on our way to the coast. Spent a couple of hours walking and watching various water birds. Even though there wasn't a lot in bloom, it was still very much worth the visit. There's no admission and a lot of places to stroll or sit and enjoy the garden.

Looking for something to do with your family? This is it! We spent two hours in the Swan Lake Iris Gardens. It wasn’t packed, it was free, and simply beautiful. My youngest enjoyed the walking tree paths as they were very educational. Great place for photography, picnics, and family bonding.

Just a lovely place to spend a few hours or so on a leisurely walk around the lake. This garden is noted for it's rehabilitation of injured swans. They do a great job! There are many different types and colors of swans - little did I know. It's a beautiful tree lined setting with many benches to sit, relax, and enjoy the swans and other fowl. There were a lot of families - great way for the kids to get out and get some exercise during this era of COVID. There is no fee.
