“Hopelands Gardens Great For All Ages”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I love Hopelands Gardens. I use to do a lot of child care jobs and I love bringing the children there. They use to and may still have story time there and it was free and the children got to bring home the book they read. The lights at Christmas Time are so beautiful and free! I have not got to go and enjoy the music that is played there yet but would really like to. I is just a relaxing and peaceful place to go. It only let me pick one what sort of visit was this and I have gone with friends too, solo too, and would love to go with my husband and just him some time.

A great place to go after dinner to walk off a meal. Very peaceful, and the gardens themselves are gorgeous!

“Horses and Gardens”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Mosquitos but worth the visit to see horse exhibit on property and the gardens are nice. Interesting variety within the gardens and pick a cooler month to visit than July or August.

“A gem of a retreat not far from downtown”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Easy to reach- just look for the street signs Easy Street/Whiskey Road and the entrance is not too far away. Beautiful gardens and walks along with a small pond to sit by and relax, There is a great deal of history that an Aiken tour guide can shed on the origin of the park and its donation to the city of Aiken. If you need a breather and a quiet place to sit and reflect this is your perfect location.
