BOTANICAL GARDENS
Brookgreen Gardens is the floral jewel of South Carolina's coastal community. Located south of Myrtle Beach, the 9,127-acre property preserves the natural and cultivated landscape of this historic site.

The breadth of this magnificent place stands before you..
The Live Oak Allée is comprised of 250 year-old Live Oak trees that were planted in the early 1700s when today's Brookgreen Gardens was four thriving rice plantations.

The four wings of the butterfly garden offer many horticultural surprises and delights as you move deeper into the Huntington Sculpture Garden.

The most notable are the Dorothy P. Peace Garden Room for Children located in the lower right wing and the Kitchen Garden found in the lower left wing. The Brenda W. Rosen Carolina Terrace Garden has a spectacular array of perennials, roses, shrubs and mature trees.

Three additional major gardens departed from the butterfly design with the focus on a formality not seen up to this point in the Gardens.

The Palmetto Garden, named for the use of Sabal palmetto, South Carolina's state tree, was completed in 1950. The whimsical Fountain of the Muses Garden, displays the sculpture of the same name and takes bold garden design to new heights.

AMERICAN SCULPTURE
Brookgreen Gardens contains the largest and most comprehensive collection of American figurative sculpture in the country, displayed in a stunning garden setting, three galleries and a visible storage and research facility.

The collection contains over 2,000 works by 425 artists and in the words of Wayne Craven, author of the book, Sculpture in America, it is "unequaled in its size, focus on figurative works, visibility of the sculpture to the visitor, and integration within a garden setting."

Indoor galleries, such as those in the Rainey Sculpture Pavilion, present exhibits of smaller sculptures, as well as paintings, etchings, and other artworks by internationally-renowned artists. Often including works on loan from museums and private collections around the world, these exhibits give visitors an opportunity to see many important works of art.

LOWCOUNTRY HISTORY
The thousands of acres in Brookgreen's Lowcountry History and Wildlife Preserve are rich with evidence of the native plants and animals of the South Carolina Lowcountry as well as the rice plantations of the 1800's.

LOWCOUNTRY ZOO
The native animals that live in the woods, swamps, and waters of the Lowcountry are being displaced by the rapidly growing population of our area. At the Lowcountry Zoo, you have the opportunity to see these animals in areas maintained as close as possible to their natural habitats.

The Lowcountry Zoo has been an important element of the mission for Brookgreen Gardens since its inception. It is the one of five institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in South Carolina. The AZA is America's most respected organization for zoos and aquariums. All of the native animals in the Lowcountry Zoo were either bred and raised in captivity, or have sustained a major disability due to injury. In either case, these animals could not survive in the wild.
