After Winter Storm Pax caused extensive debris damage to Hopelands Gardens and Rye Patch, both have now reopened to the public, according to a press release.

Hopelands Gardens and Rye Patch were both closed on Feb. 13 to clean up debris and retrieve hangers in the trees which could cause safety hazards to visitors.

I want to thank the City of Aiken Public Services Department, Tim Coakley, Tom Rapp and their crews for all the hard work that has been done in getting both of the historic properties cleared out and opened in time for spring, said Glenn Parker, director of the City of Aiken Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department.
