WE HOPE YOU VISIT SOON
TIPS FOR VISITING
We would like to create a wonderful experience for all our visitors and offer the following tips for visiting the Gardens. We hope you enjoy the Gardens and return again and again which is one of the reasons why your admission ticket is good for seven consecutive days.
We offer a complimentary shuttle (March - November) that runs daily on a continuous basis to our three main areas - the Gardens, the Lowcountry Center, and the Zoo.
Please wear comfortable shoes for walking. In the summer, you may also want to wear a sun hat, parasol, sunscreen, and sunglasses.
Water fountains and vending machines with beverages are located throughout the Gardens.
Push-type strollers for children and adults are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. The Gardens are accessible to people with disabilities.
There are several indoor facilities where you can enjoy climate controlled comfort, such as the Welcome Center (we highly recommend you begin your visit here), the Sculpture Galleries, the Lowcountry Center, Children's Discovery Room, Keepsakes - the Brookgreen Shop, and the Pavilion Restaurant. Free WiFi is available at the Welcome Center, Pavilion Restaurant, and the Old Kitchen.
The Gardens and the Zoo are filled with shady places and benches where you may sit, relax, and enjoy the views.
Bicycles are welcome on the paved roads but not allowed on the sidewalks.
No pets allowed. Brookgreen Gardens is home to many wild species, including snakes and alligators. Please keep an eye out for our wild neighbors, and do not approach them.
Personal photography is encouraged but commercial photography is not allowed.
