I love this place as I have a problem walking and there are plenty of benches to rest on. the flowers are beautiful. also if you ask they will give you seeds if any plants have them. I have also received cuttings of some vines. neat place.

Absolutely stunning variety of flowers trees shrubs plus an excellent tour of the house on the grounds. The rose garden and the variety of palms are especially noteworthy. One could spend the better part of a day there.

The grounds are exquisite, lush and well laid out. There are shelters in case of rain. Try to visit all of the areas, as they are quite distinct. We particularly liked the tropical section and the idea garden. It is a very special and beautiful retreat.

My mom and I came to the Gardens for their plant sale. This was my second time visiting (the first was for a wedding, but I didn't get to actually walk through the gardens) and it was breathtaking. The gardens are beautiful and the staff was very friendly. Also the plant sale they had was huge!!! There were so many... More

Lovely grounds to explore. Very relaxing. Some sections (like the roses) you will only see during certain months as it will be too hot most of the year, but most of it is totally explorable all the time! The only thing that will limit you is heat, rain, and if someone is having a wedding. Well worth a visit! Lovely... More

I have had several wonderful experiences in this beautiful park. The flowers are gorgeous and worth experiencing. However, I have also attended a lovely wedding culminating in a carriage ride through the park. In addition, they offer some fantastic concerts. I attended a wonderful jazz festival with bands scattered in various locations. We had our picnic supplies and there were... More

We have been to the Leu Gardens several times and prefer the spring gardens to other times of the year. Early spring brings the azeleas and by the end of March the new shoots are firmly established on many of the deciduous shrubs. I like the look of the new growth on the Crape Myrltle's. Be sure to take the... More

We enjoyed the serene stroll through the garden. The diversity and colors were great. Everything was wonderfully groomed and labeled as we followed the nice walkways. Be sure to tour the Leu House during your stop

So completely different to Theme Park day, so peaceful and tranquil its difficult to remember youre in the heart of Orlando. The gardens are well kept and the plants clearly marked. This year we followed the frog trail, which took us around all the garden in an ordered fashion, not just going from section to section randomly, so we probably... More

We loved these gardens and were so happy they were so close to the airport so we could see them on the day we left Orlando on a late flight. Plenty of trails and beautiful flowers and trees. Relaxing way to spend a day before heading home to hectic reality.The tour of the home on the property was especially good... More
