A great break from the hustle and the bustle of Daytona for all ages. Kids (and adults) will enjoy finding the dinosaur statues hidden along the pathways. Adults will enjoy the beautiful gardens and sugar mill ruins. The walkways are well maintained and the volunteers were very friendly. The paths interconnect so you can spend a few minutes to a...

We visit the gardens at least monthly. Each season has it's own beauties. Love the Christmas and holiday events. The work of the volunteers is appreciated

Very relaxing walk through the gardens. It is beautifully laid out. Not much in bloom while we were there, but that didn't really matter. Very interesting information on the sugar mills history. It's free and has a nice parking lot right across the street.

Cute little side trip if you are in the area. They have old concrete dinosaurs in the back. Beautiful flowers and butterflies.

Nice garden to walk around. Nice and cool on a sunny day. History buffs will enjoy the sugar mill building. Lots of native place to see. Plenty of parking.

It's off of the beaten path. I enjoyed the quiet and the memories of those dinosaur parks. It is beautiful. You walk along and then a dinosaur will be there.

Sugar Mill Botanical Gardens is off the beaten path and feels like a world away. It's peaceful, shady and full of different types of plants, birds and butterflies. Nice leisurely stroll with plenty of benches spaced out just perfectly for birdwatching. It's free and operates off of donations. Husband and I stayed in St. Augustine, FL for a few days... More

This is a relative standard botanical garden, but what is really a standout is the self-guided tour of the old sugar mill. The signs do a great describing how sugar is made, and what the equipment did. There are also some old dinosaur statues from the time this was Bongoland, a kitschy tourist-trap kind of place from the mid-1900s.
