This is a very nice place to walk amongst the foliage. There are multiple places to take some really nice pictures, so bring your camera. The trees are marked detailing what types they are, which is nice too.

This is a cute little garden by Lake Mirror and a nice playground. It is a very quaint garden, although not very big. If you are in Lakeland, it is worth seeing, however. I think it is closed on Mondays.

This is a beautiful garden area complete with bamboo and koi garden, groto, fountains and cascading waterflows, grassy areas, terraced flowers, theme garden areas. Not very huge and closed in the evenings/nights, but well worth a visit during your stay in Lakeland.
