Hollis Gardens is an oasis in central Lakeland. Although small, it is beautiful and well maintained. It also sits beside Lake Mirror, which affords some really nice views. The gardens feature several small patches arranged by color, and seasonal plantings, along with the permanent plants. Very worthwhile for a short visit. Free and doesn't take long.

This is a very beautiful and well manicured garden. We have seen people get married in the garden and it is a beautiful set up for a nice wedding. The park is closed on Mondays.

It is free to visit Hollis Garden. I often take friends to visit the garden that had no idea that it was there. It is beautifully maintained and offers a peaceful setting for the public to enjoy.

It was magnificent. We got to meet the carillon instrumentalist. Unfornately there was marked quiet zone to listen to the music being performed. We finally found an out of the way spot and heard the last two songs. It is a great spot for people to walk and enjoy a huge garden.
