Park
“What started as the backyard garden of David & Hazel Bigger in 1928 is now an 11 acre paradise located in the heart of Rock Hill . . . and it continues to grow. The Garden boasts a variety of blooms year round. Azaleas, dogwoods, wisteria, camellias, and hardwood trees are just a few of the treasures awaiting visitors as they stroll the grounds. Although it varies somewhat each year, the peak blooming season is typically during late March/early April. The Garden was the original inspiration for Rock Hill’s annual Come-See-Me Festival which has become a 10-day event held each spring at Glencairn Garden and other Rock Hill sites. There is no admission fee for the general use of the garden.”
