This is the best botanical garden in central Florida. Yes Animal kingdom & Epcot have great flower and wine shows but this place is the real deal everyday of the year. Once a moth you can pack up a picnic and bring chairs to watch a outdoor movie. They let you bring wine! I saw the advanced vistors pack up... More

Very little to do. Mostly plants and not interactive. Tried the geocaching but couldn't get it to work and finally gave up. It is pretty boring.

Fun for the whole family. They literally have just about every tree and flower in the world here. My family spent two hours here and we only seen about half of it. Save money and go on the free admission day once a month.

At the end of the day, you're paying $10 to look at flowers, plants and trees. Paths are confusing. Employees are rude. On our way out, an employee rode by and said "exit's that way" as though we were too dumb to read the signs.

Beautiful gardens and well kept. Wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking. Also went on the Leu House tour and guide was very knowledgeable.

We were surprised by the choice of healthy items to eat and they were all freshly cooked to order. The staff are lovely and these gardens are worth a visit, a nice change from the usual things to do in Orlando.

A bright sunny January day with my 89 year old grandmother- perfect! She really enjoyed our visit and how easy it was for her to get around. There was even a wedding in the rose garden, how sweet!

The Harry P Leu Gardens include many different gardens and meandering pathways. Gardens include: rose, vegetable, color and white, arid (species), bamboo, palm and more. There is a big clock floral display as well. You can take a guided tour of Leu’s house. The garden is in North Orlando in a somewhat non-touristy area. First Monday of the month is... More

Beautiful gardens and flowers. A great way to spend some time in the shade on a hot Central Florida afternoon. Staff are friendly and answer questions about the plants and the history of the area. Would highly recommend for any one who wants some green-thumb inspiration.
