Bald cypress trees overgrowing former rice reservoirs, swamp boat tours and more

Cypress Gardens is located on the former site of Dean Hall Plantation, a prosperous 3000-acre rice plantation established in the early 1700s. It was then hunting land before becoming a public garden in 1932. Today Cypress Gardens (named appropriately for the bald cypress trees overgrowing the former rice reservoirs) offers the ultimate nature adventure with a Butterfly House, a gift shop, a Heritage Room with exhibits and artifacts about Cypress Gardens during its days as a plantation, a Swamparium that includes an aquarium and reptile center, swamp boat tours and walking trails! History Trivia: Cypress Gardens has been a set for multiple movie productions including The Notebook and The Patriot (the swamp hideout in the movie is still visible at the gardens today!).
