Angel of Hope Garden

The Edisto Memorial Gardens proudly hosts the unique Angel of Hope Project, the sole one of its kind in South Carolina. Although there are over 90 Angel sculptures across the United States, this singular monument in our gardens holds a special place in our hearts. The Angel of Hope is a heartfelt tribute to children who have departed from our world due to natural causes or unfortunate accidents.

Within this serene garden, we offer a sanctuary for healing and reflection to the parents, family members, and friends who carry the memories of these children. This inspiring project is the result of a collaborative effort between the City of Orangeburg Parks and Recreation Department and the Angel of Hope Committee, who tirelessly raised the necessary funds for its creation.

In addition to the Angel of Hope sculpture, our garden boasts enchanting landscaping, elegant brick pavers, a dedicatory wall, and a designated area for recognition bricks. Join us in cherishing the memory of these beloved children in a place of solace and remembrance.
