I loved Edison Park, the Banyans are amazing, one being over 80 years old. Just amazing and a must see.

This great park has it all! Trails for walking or biking with bike rental available. Splash areas great for kids. Mini Train to ride. Botanical gardens. Nice lake where you can rent a canoe or kayak. Also, during the season a great farmers market on Friday mornings.

We learned a lot about the Edison history, and inventions. Not all were created for the use we know. He had a hearing problem so some were related to better hearing uses. Very family friendly as well as interesting. Some displays are hands on. His gardens were his way of looking for a filament for his light bulb. We were... More

If you are looking for a great place to live in SW Florida, Edison Park is a great place to check out. There are not many homes available at any one time and most are bought up quickly. If you like historic neighborhoods this is a good place to start.

Not the most pleasant way to spend a steamy August afternoon but the knowledge gained from the visit was priceless. The videos of Edison, Henry Ford, Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone offer a window into America before and during WWI that is unique. These men camped together throughout the Northeast and Florida and their travels captivated the entire nation.

Great place to learn some history and enjoy a walk along the water in a lovely garden. They were having a great plant/garden sale the day we were there.

Not bad, but kinda expensive thou and you have to pay ticket for each different access. The lab access really just a not worth and you can't access to it and only stand behind the barrier to view it. Disappointed.

I actually went here in May 2014, but it won't let me choose back that far in the drop down box. I went here with my mother last year and we really enjoyed it. We are both history buffs, but didn't even listen to the little handset they gave us, we preferred to just stroll the grounds at our own... More

Fantastic gardens with the Edison and Ford mansions to look round. The Thomas Edison complex is so interesting and you have the best of both worlds with Fords vehicles. The gardens are full of plants from all over the world which Edison brought back from his travels. Both houses are full of artefacts and are a joy to see. The... More
