The black water is actually stains from the tannins from the oak leaves that fall into the water. Another attraction is the Chinese... More

have been coming for over 60 years and still enjoy visits with grandkids to feed the ducks and see flowers. The walk to see the water wheel on Edisto River is well worth the trip. New Fountains are also nice, but gardens are real draw for us.

Walking thru the flower makes me think of having a little piece of heaven on earth. The flowers are so beautiful when in full bloom. You can experience a lot different aspects of nature in the park.

This is still a nice peaceful oasis even though it's sustained wind and rain damage the last six months. The river is so high that they have closed the boardwalk unfortunately. It has mostly azaleas and roses as it's feature so spring visit is best. Mid march to mid may. The rose garden is large but in need of some... More

One can stroll,power walk,jog,or whatever that fit their desire of " the body in motion". I am glad that we have the gardens here for our leisure.... More

We visited at peak azalea and camellia season and we're totally awestruck. This is a wonderful spot to stroll through gardens for really beautiful photos. It is quiet and peaceful....even has a boardwalk along the Edisto River but partially closed due to a massive cypress tree down due to a storm. We can't wait to come back in May and... More
