Spent the entire day exploring the gardens. The statues are plentiful, the grounds are groomed to perfection. Ate at Pavillons Restaurant, which was very good. An excellent spot to spend a day while visiting Myrtle Beach.

Allow enough time for your visit. Excellent experience for the money. Volunteers who work there are very well schooled and very helpful. Wonderful sculptures, wonderful grounds, and well maintained.

These gardens were so unique and so beautiful. We wish we could have spent more time exploring. We willk return but in cooler weather.

Lots of great things to do if you are an adult. The river trip was very educational. We love coming here over and over!

The 5 day pass for $16.00 was well worth it. The gardens and sculptures are like nothing you have ever seen. Walk the trails or take the free shuttle to get around. The open zoo was very well done. Don't miss out on this.

Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is. The gardens, sculptures, fountains and wildlife were amazing. Great way to spend an afternoon or evening strolling around. Relaxing and gorgeous.

The Lego exhibit is not here this year, but we have "Ribbit the Exhibit" until July 9th. It's a charming exhibit of larger than life copper frog sculptures. Our guests have really been enjoying it!
