I was so nice and ended up much better than I expected. Even saw an armadillo and osprey nest. Nicely laid out and you could just stroll and relax. Lots of different plants and flowers. A great escape for this little Central Florida girl.

We really enjoyed walking around the gardens during an afternoon in December. So much to see! We loved the winding paths, water features, and unique plants/flowers.

Beautiful Christmas light display and wonderful juggling performer, Dan Brown. Gardens hard to see at night but the lights were fabulous. Mr and Mrs Santa Claus as well as refreshments were there. It was warm and mosquitos were bad but no fault except nature. Would recommend for all local families and visitiors - the take a very small donation.

Thank you so much! The Holiday Lights fundraiser was a great success this past year with over 70,000 attendees. We look forward to seeing everyone next year. And, as always we will be looking for volunteers and sponsors early in the Fall. More

I have been to visit several times and I simply like the peaceful surroundings of the place. At Christmas they have the lights display, a special place to rent year round for weddings and the subject of my most recent visit, Heritage Village. A number of homes have been moved here, restored to their original character and set on the... More

Wonderful day spent walking around all the exhibits. Get a map and make sure to visit each area. A lot of great photo opportunities of flora and fauna.

I visited these gardens in January on a very chilly day. There wasn't much in bloom at that time. Regardless the garden paths were beautiful and all the different plants were extremely well labeled. There was a large variety of plantings with fountains and sculptures scattered throughout. Most of the fountains were turned off the day I was there ,... More

This is a very nice botanical garden, though small. Great assortment of tropical plants such as bromiliads, and banana plants. The best part, as someone interested in gardening was how well everything was labeled. The nature walk off the parking lot was also a worthwhile little hike.

We came here a little bit too late and couldn't spend as long as we would have liked. Being a master gardener in Florida, I wanted to take more time to explore. You need a few hours to enjoy the lovely grounds, (themed areas), fountains, cacti area, ponds, the area where they hold weddings, more importantly the etc. and it's... More
