Great Little Garden

The garden was really pretty. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the gardens. There was also a cafe to enjoy lunch. We found it to be a little oasis in the city.

Lake Mirror is popular for outdoor weddings; we were there for one and there were three others going on at different places in the complex. While waiting for ours to commence, we took a few minutes to wander through the garden and sure did enjoy it. There are several good photo op locations. Well manicured and landscaped with much attention... More

Beautiful gardens on a great lake very near downtown. Very quiet and picturesque with benches. Parking is available right there.

Visit Hollis Gardens on Lake Mirror in the heart of the historic district of Lakeland, Florida. Tropical flowers, roses, cactus, vegetables and more all labled so you can learn the species. Visit the Hollis Gardens, stroll Lake Mirror, eat at the Garden Bistro and have a wonderful day.

An excellent place to unwind with a walk and great scenery. It is best to go there when the weather is cool. It gets very hot!

The perfect spot for a scenic walk through the flowers and around the lake. Hollis Garden is also a favorite spot for family photos, engagement photos, and weddings. Garden Bistro is right next to the Garden for when you are hungry and want a nice lunch overlooking the lake.

An amazing opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle and breathe in the beauty of not only the various gardens, sculptures, secluded walkways and water features. Background music piped throughout main gardens to enhance your experience.

It was a day trip with friends. Didn't know about the garden but it was a very nice surprise. It was very well tended and had a great variety of mature plants, a plant person's delight.

Not being a FL native, I am always amazed at the variety of plants flourishing in December. My son got a new camera for Christmas and what better place for him to try it out than Hois Gardens! Between the well tended beds of plants and flowers to the lovely fountains, Hollis Gardens is a budding photographer's dream.
