Large collection of plants and trees, even lot of birds and reptiles to see. Was working at Clemson University, saw lot of Copper heads in the Botanic garden during dusk. Also lot of fat snakes, woodpeckers. Love the renovated water fall and old house near the lake. It is such a nice place to walk with your kids and relax.

A beautiful spot with lots of walkable gardens, places to sit and rest and even have a picnic lunch. Well-cared for botanical gardens with free parking, free admission. Nice gift shop too.

We drove from Atlanta to see the eclipse and stroll through the gardens. We were able to experience the eclipse but there are NO signs, directions or anything on how to get to the gardens. The center was closed so couldn't ask. I can't believe the total lack of directions for the gardens. We found a map but it too was TOTALLY devoid of how to get inside the gardens. We just left!!

I had a guided tour of these beautiful gardens by my son Tyler in Late July while we were visiting. A beautiful place for a hike with a great diversity of plant life! I hope to return and try another trail!
