Cypress Gardens (Berkeley County Government)

Berkeley County government officials provided drone video Thursday that offers a sneak peak at Cypress Gardens ahead of the popular attraction's reopening.

Cypress Gardens, which has been closed since October 2015 because of damage caused by historic flooding, is set to finally reopen to the public April 13, 2019.

.Work to repair the park and reopen it have been delayed because of funding and more severe weather, according to Berkeley County public information officer Hannah Moldenhauer.

The boat dock, walkways, bridges, a parking lot, ticket booth, the visitors’ center, front lawn and more all are receiving improvements and upgrades before the reopening.
