Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet

Brookgreen Gardens plays home to a sculpture park with 1,400 pieces of art, trails, nature reserves, and a zoo. Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington bought the property, which was originally four plantations, to showcase her figurative sculptures in an outdoor environment. Wander through lush, moss-draped coastal vegetation, along riverbanks, and across rich marshland at this National Historic Landmark that opened to the public in 1932. Watch for local wildlife and numerous archaeological sites, or visit the on-site Lowcountry Zoo and its dedicated center for rehabilitating injured animals.

  • The Gardens looks breathtakingly beautiful during the Holidays. The lights and candles make the place glow. It was such a romantic and lovely experience. I can't believe I had never gone before. Completely and extremely worth the price. It is something everyone should experience at least once in their life.
  • This place is amazingly beautiful. We rode our bikes in from the Murrells Inlet bike path. You have to leave your bikes near the parking lot and walk through the gardens and zoo so bring your walking shoes. But you can ride bikes on the road from the gardens to the zoo- anywhere a car can go. Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and an amusing story teller!! The sculpture throughout the park is stunning. Great experience! Highly recommend!
