What a joy it was to visit this garden from the frigid north in the middle of February. It is a well-balanced and diverse garden. The rose, camelia and citrus gardens were specially nice. Take the home tour also, it is interesting.

This is a nice, quiet spot to spend 2-3 hours in Orlando. The walk through 50 acres of flowers and plants is worth the time. I really liked the 30 minute guided tour through the Harry P Leu home, and looking at the lemon and other fruit trees in the gardens. The frogs throughout the property are fun to look... More

A beautiful and natural respite, among all the other sites in Orlando. I liked walking among many different plant species and water features. Just lovely and relaxing.

I have visited on multiple occasions and each time love it. It is beautiful, relaxing, makes for great pictures, and definitely knows how to host a wedding party, which was what my most recent visit entailed.

Hint: Although the 5 acre garden is comprised of a rose garden, color garden, butterfly garden as well as wetlands and oaks, the tour of the family home by a knowledgeable docent is the frosting on the cake, It is included in the entrance fee. There are small frog sculptures that will fascinate the kids along with a booklet to... More

We enjoyed a beautiful 3 hour walk enjoying the flowers , birds and butterflies. For an added attraction they gave us a map with clues to find 18 copper frogs decorated by sponsors, placed through out the gardens. Fun for all and each one was very different. We will return when in the Orlando area.

We've been coming to Orlando for more than 15 years and I am so sorry this was our first trip. Perfect romantic walk with those great metal statuary. Can't wait to go again!

Beautiful, tranquil, peaceful, just a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. Better yet pack a lunch and eat at their lakeside picnic area. The kids will love it too.
