Check opening schedule of Cypress Gardens or visit a different site - there are several good state parks nearby, including one on an old canal. Plenty of birds and wildlife.

Such a great variety of things to at Cypress Gardens. View the alligators, stroll through a butterfly garden, or paddle boat through the calm of the low country waters.

Due to the heavy rains we had, the gardens are closed until next spring. Much damage was done due flooding. Estimated damages up to 10 million dollars. For those of us who live here, we are so sorry you have missed this beautiful place.
