  • This place is so beautiful! A must see if you travel to Aiken. This is my hometown and I visit Hopelands Gardens every time I come to town. Nice place to take pictures, walk around the pond, have a wedding or visit the museum.
  • Went for Christmas light show. Even though it was free entry, the decorations are made nicely. Opening time is slightly short though despite of the queue line. It's recommended to come early else it'll be 40 min wait soon
  • The garden was beautiful. I heard from my tour guide that it host concerts and light shows. The garden is super peaceful; there were koi fishes in the moving pond. There are swing sets for couples. There are green archers tunnels. It's a great place to take wedding pictures :) The colors of the place are in shades and hues of red, green, pink, white, yellow, and brown. I would like to come back, sit on the swing sets, and read a book.
  • I take my dog here for walks all the time, he loves it. It is great for a short walk, a picnic.
  • Beautiful gardens and a peaceful place to walk and sit. I love that it is free to visit, and has interesting features, like fountains and a stage for shows and musicians. Parts of the park, however, could certainly use a little work to be cleaned up and put into good working order.
