So so beautiful! They really do a wonderful job keeping up the area, and so much better than spending a day indoors! They are constantly having great events, usually with proceeds being donated.

I did a general search for gardens to visit and found these gardens had great reviews, For a nominal charge, this was an excellent escape from all the hustle and bustle of attractions and was an unexpected 'Beautiful'.

I went to Harry P. Leu Gardens with my photography group. There were so many beautiful flowers and gardens to photograph that we had a wonderful day there. Even if you don't go with your camera, it is a lovely place to visit.

We visited Harry P Leu gardens and were impressed. The gardens are extensive. We enjoyed the tour of house which is a tour into the past.

We were in Orlando over the Holidays and wanted something other than Disney to take my elderly mother. We rented her a walker and went to Harry P. Leu Gardens. A wedding was being held in one area and we were enchanted. The beauty of the gardens in December is a true treasure and can't wait to visit during other... More

You can.. if you start looking up between the tree leaves. Amazing variety of tropical plants in a nicely laid big garden. Extremely quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to wander around without any worry. If you have a few hours in Orlando, before catching your plane, this place is definitely worth a visit.

I enjoyed my trip to the gardens. The grounds were lovely. There were areas for gardeners, and areas of historic interest, like the Leu house. There were quite a few butterflies, even outside the butterfly garden and we has some exciting wildlife sightings, like of an owl.

Love the gardens (and kids story time if they still do it is excellent). So many places to explore. I especially move the rose garden. It is much more enjoyable to go when it is cool, or at least on a cloudy day in the morning.

The gardens are located in Orlando past the science and museum area. It is a surprising little gem to find that makes you feel as if you have stepped into a tropical oasis. Equally enjoyable is the fact that is incredibly close to many delicious Asian restaurants. You can grab a quick bite and bring it into the gardens. Plus,... More
