The majority of work at the park was completed in-house, with help from Berkeley County departments, including Facility and Grounds, Water and Sanitation, Roads and Bridges and others.

Cypress Gardens closed in October of 2015 after the historic floods. Since the closing, funding, timing and weather all impacted the project, and kept the County from reopening the facilities.

Berkeley County would like to encourage residents to visit the park. Berkeley County residents can enjoy free admittance to the park everyday through June 30, with proof of residency.
