Again, a beautiful spot on Lake Mirror. Lush gardens;.usually soft music; a great place to get married. Indoor availabilities if you prefer. Another spectacular site to be found in beautiful Lakeland, Fl.

This public garden along Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland is a joy to stroll through. It has classic formal aspects and a bit of whimsey as well. It is well tended with beautiful tropical plants including the largest staghorn fern I have ever seen. The garden is just off the well-used path that circles the lake. There is no charge... More

I live in Lakeland and have been here many times. Each area of the garden they call "rooms" There is a yellow room, a red room, a tropical room, a vegetable room etc. It's nice to go here from Mid October to April when it isn't so hot. There is a waterfall over a rock wall and a koi pond.... More

We take all of our out of town company to Hollis Gardens. Beautiful setting along Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland. Totally free & you can take all the time you want to wander among the flowers & plants. Not a large garden so it's not a day trip but just a nice stopover after lunch or shopping.

When I first moved to Lakeland and went exploring this was one of my favorite places that I found. Lake Mirror is beautiful and located in the charming downtown area. And Hollis Gardens is a beautiful little botanical garden, and very peaceful. I take everyone who comes to visit me to this park.

This was the second time we have been to Hollis Garden. There had been more rain the last 2 months and the place looked exceptionally good. We were lucky enough to have Steve, one of the full time workers, give us some very good information about the Garden. He also told us a little of the history of the Garden... More

This is such a Wow factor just a short drive downtown. Situated on one of the many lakes it is a beautiful place to spend a relaxed hour just walking around and exploring all the lovely plants. This is a popular photo location for prom and brides. It can also be reserved for wedding and functions for a reasonable price... More

My husband and I finally got around to visiting Hollis Gardens. It was hot weather, but it was worth the walk through it. The flowers were lovely. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few fruit trees and a few patches of vegetables well placed throughout the gardens. It overlooks Lake Mirror, which is lovely to walk around. Several restaurants... More
