The first trip to Mead Gardens was with a class of children, it was exciting and full of life. The second trip however, was for a wedding. I don't know if it was the time of year or what. There were little to no blooms....More

One would not expect such a lovely place. Great place to picnic and also a beautiful wedding venue. There is also a bike path the runs through the property. Very serene!

We called here after I'd looked at other reviews regarding the wildlife that could be seen. It was a bit of a search to get there even using sat navigation but by the time we entered the park it was getting on for 11.30am so...More

Don't bother. Nothing to see but rotting board walks and trash in bushes. The only butterfly we saw on the butterfly garden was the butterfly chair. Very disappointed.

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...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...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.
