Sumter Community Guide
Known as the "Crown Jewel" of Sumter, Swan Lake-Iris Gardens is located in the heart of the city and hosts the world-famous Iris Festival each May. A half century ago, a local entrepreneur donated a parcel of land to the city with only one stipulation--that it always be used for public purposes. Later, another entrepreneur matched the gift with an adjoining parcel of land, and Swan lake-Iris Gardens came into being.
