Angel of Hope Garden
The Angel of Hope Project is another unique feature of the Edisto Memorial Gardens. There are over 90 Angel sculptures around the U.S., but this is the only one in South Carolina. The Angel of Hope is dedicated to the children that have lost their lives through natural causes or accidents. This monument and garden is a place for healing and meditation for the parents, other family members, and friends of these children. The Project is a joint effort of the City of Orangeburg Parks and Recreation Dept. and the Angel of Hope Committee, raised funds for the Project. In addition, to the Angel of Hope sculpture, the area features beautiful landscaping, brick pavers, and dedicatory wall and an area for recognition bricks.
