If you enjoy nature this lovely little jewel will be right up your alley. Wonderful place to do a makeshift photo shoot or just relax on a bench and take in the beautiful scenery. Lastly...it's free :)

These gardens are beautiful and the history of the old sugar mill is amazing. Seems only locals go but tourist should also. And.....they have free entry. Will only take you about an hour to tour the entire gardens...longer if you like to mosey like I do

There are a lot of history here at the Sugar Mill Botanical Gardens in Port Orange. Sugar Mill plantations built here before the American Revolution. Also Seminole Wars with White settlers. A large Black colony was located here in Port Orange years ago when the City was called Dunlawton. Port Orange's main road is named after its original name.

This is a free garden, open everyday all year round. The old oak trees with hanging Spanish moss, gives the gardens a haunting look as one walks into the past. The sundial clock of stepping stones actually is correct! My Hubby of 45 years tried it out, it was 3:10 p.m. When one walks into the gardens, the temperature cools... More

If you like to take in a little of the area's history then visit Sugar Mill gardens. Or if you just want to walk through quiet, shaded paths, visit Sugar Mill Gardens.

The Sugar Mill Gardens is a beautiful place to go. They have hidden Dinosaurs in the park. It is full of History as well. It is free but you can leave a donation. I always send people here.
