Hopeland Gardens and Rye Patch

Aiken, South Carolina
United States

It is always a pleasure to visit the fourteen-acre Hopeland Gardens, even on the hottest of summer days, for they are shaded by gazebos, willows, ancient live oaks, towering magnolias, and deodar cedars and are cooled by fountains and pools. There are colorful blossoms to enjoy year-round; fragrant spring roses; crape myrtle blooms in summer; and camellias, azaleas, wisterias, magnolias, lilies, and dogwoods throughout the growing season. A scenic walk takes you past reflecting pools with statuary and fountains and two small lakes surrounded by weeping willows and spring bulbs. Other highlights at Hopeland include a Touch and Scent Trail for the visually impaired and the thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame, appropriately located in what used to be a carriage house.
