I bypassed all the city's attractions but could not miss this beautiful garden. It is small, but provides a nice opportunity for peace in the midst of beautiful garden. The tour of the mansion gives a glimpse of how the rich lived in this part of Florida

This is a very nice garden with a great selection of trees and plants to look at. There's a very nice concrete walkway that allows you to stroll the paths with strollers no problem.

My visit this year was highlighted with blooming camellias in all shades of pink and white. Azaleas and many other shrubs, trees and flowers were also in full boom. There are several winding paths to stroll, lake views, a pleasant Visitors Center with restrooms and a gift shop. A very well done dinosaur display is hidden throughout the gardens. They... More

We were very impressed by the gardens. And for only $10 each we enjoy spending a couple of hours walking the grounds. There was a dinosaur exhibit at the time and it was fun to come upon them and learn facts we didn't know. The house on the property is a must see. The detail in the furnishings made you... More

Not everything was in bloom, but the Rose Garden was nice, and the Camelias were beautiful. It's a nice place to explore and stroll the walkways. We spent a morning there and it was well worth it.

Beautiful; especially when the weather is mild. Go for the Ghost Stories in October - perfectly creepy!

Allow at least a half day to stroll the better part of the 55 acres that are immaculately manicured, offer a massive array of plants that are not indigenous to the Orlando area. A tour of the house by a knowledgeable docent gave insight to the four families who once lived here.
