This was our third visit to the extraordinary grounds of Hopeland Park. This time without the kiddos. Absolutely beautiful each time. The unique wavy brick walls fascinate is architecturally as do the immense Live Oaks which beg to be climbed. These giants have stories to...More

Hopelands Gardens is a must see for visitors to Aiken. Local residents enjoy special events throughout the year or visit just to unwind and enjoy the beautifully maintained gardens. Like a step back in time.

Beautiful night of lights at Hopelands. Hot Chocolate and cookies for the kids is a great add for small cash donations. Wish local parking was more available.

This tranquil park is great any time of year, but the Christmas light display is especially good. A self-guided walk through the park with many light displays. Also, hot chocolate and cookies!

Gardens were beautiful. Shuttle line was very long and busses were not large enough to accommodate the crowd. We went on Friday early evening so perhaps another night would be better.

I had never been to Hopeland Gardens during the day, but heard they had a nice light display for the holidays. We went on a Friday night around 8:00 and they weren't too busy. We had to wait about 15 minutes for the shuttle in...More

There is a sign at the entrance that says you must pay to take professional pictures. There is info there about how to schedule photo shoots.
