Pretty walk lined with flowers, Spanish moss and dinosaurs.

I enjoyed walking around and taking pictures there. Nothing too special but free and pretty to look at.

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.

An absolutely beautiful place to spend 30 minutes to an hour wandering the trails. The history behind the sugar mill was quite amazing and informative. You can go inside the actual mill and see the area where the sugar cane was pressed. In the 1950's they tried to develop the area into an amusement park, so there are dinosaurs left... More

I love this place! It is an original sugar mill that has good signage of what it was used for several hundred years ago. It is now surrounded by beautiful natural Florida gardens that are tended by volunteers. Our local garden club had a private tour here and we learned so much about what plants thrive in this part of... More

This park is free to visit and interesting. However is a dog owner I am very disappointed that pets are not allowed. I don't go anywhere I can't bring my dog. And using a lame excuse about the plants being poisonous doesn't really work.
