Mead Garden is different. Smaller and more intimate, it draws you in to discover hidden nooks and treasures. The little pond is charming and relaxing. The butterfly garden had quite a few fluttering about the day I visited. A large area with trees and some scattered tables is a perfect spot for lunch or the shaded area next to the... More

Mead Garden is very nice. But it can do with a bit more upkeep. Some of the scenic walkways (through swampy spots) were destroyed by a hurricane a number of years ago and they have never been rebuilt. Instead, a new shorter route has been provided. The greenhouse has some very interesting plants and is worth a quick visit. The... More

Not pristinely manicured- and that's part of what makes it so fun! the plants were stunning and it was so nice to walk around after lunch in Winter Park. I want my children to see natural things on our trips, not just tourist traps.

This is a fine place to have a picnic or view local wildlife in the small ponds. There are facilities for special events but this park is somewhat neglected by the city and partly used as a storage yard for city plantings and such.

Mead Gardens is a wonderful venue for special occasions. It was founded in 1922 to promote gardening and to make Winte Park more beautiful. It's free to the public and is open daily from dawn to dusk. There's a 47 acres for you to enjoy and walk exploring as much as you want. You can come and listen to the... More

What a beautiful old park in Winter Park. A bit on the rustic side, but many great paths and water features. Would love to see more activities, like a movie in the park, or an event to go to there, plenty of room for activities.

This is not a large park, so it is a nice park to visit for an hour. It has a nice array of plants. It is old Florida. There is a small greenhouse to visit.

Snakey, probably gatory, muddy, mosquitoy, yuk. It connects me to a good walk from my house to Leu Gardens, which are beautiful, everything this p[lace isn't. I wish they'd pave it so I can get to pretty, well maintained gardens easier, with less water and mud.
