Very nice walk around, grab a few pictures and just relax. If you go to Google Images you can see many pictures of Hollis Garden, and see if it's the right place for you to visit. There is a Resturant there as well, you may read my review about it. See you there!!!

What a lovely place to wonder around in. In season the plants and flowers are outstanding. The groundkeepers put a lot of careful work in the park. You have a beautiful view of Lake Mirror and the statues are really interesting. A walk around the lake is very relaxing.

We visited this location recently on a sunny afternoon. The gardens are beautiful and the walk around Mirror Lake is thoroughly enjoyable. There were many benches along the route for those who might need a rest or want to pause and observe the surroundings and listen to the chamber music in one of the parks. I would highly recommend this... More

These gardens, set on Lake Mirror, are an oasis of quiet beauty. Excellent wedding venue, too. The adjacent children's park is great, too. Lots to enjoy for free in downtown Lakeland.

Hollis Garden is part of what makes downtown Lakeland special. It is a beautiful, peaceful place to visit any time of year. There is a variety of flowers, plants, and fountains which are well kept. The gazebo area is popular for weddings and photo occasions. Much of the garden is in the sun, but there are shaded areas to sit... More

The waterfront location is a very beautiful location to stop and see the flowers and take a stroll around the small lake. The only real downside is that it is such a pretty spot in the middle of Lakeland that it tends to get overrun with local photographers during certain times of the day. I have no issue at all...
