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

Several restaurants... More

Walkways through out and a great egret feasting on lizards was a bit of entertainment during a visit. The location is popular for weddings inside and affords great outdoor photo ops

They do a great job with the landscaping which is well maintained. It is very quiet and peaceful. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy nature. They also have a very good Bistro with good salads and sandwiches

This is a wonderful place to go. Many people have Prom or Wedding photos made here. It is located by beautiful Lake Mirror in Lakeland, FL. There is a small playground and water spouts for young children. Contact the City of Lakeland Parks and Rec department to reserve party rooms.

Visit the garden "rooms", each with different colors and sculptures to enjoy. Listen to the music, watch the koi splash around, find the secret grotto, and find a bench to enjoy the views all around you.
