We held a small wedding ceremony here and were thrilled. The volunteer staff was helpful and accommodating, the grounds beautiful and a great place for wedding pictures. It was perfect for us!

Amazing gardens, fun history, and interesting history all rolled into one. I never knew Florida had sugar cane farms! This was an interesting trip.

I loved this beautiful place. It's a medium sized garden and so lovely to walk through. It's a tropical oasis and the selection of plants are fantastic. They have historic giant oak trees covered with silky spanish moss to shade you as you walk the paths and enjoy the glorious ferns, flowers, and fountains. As you walk the gardens you... More

this is a small serene area with history of the Port Orange settlement. it was an old mill destroyed by the idisans way back when. As you walk through the gardens there are ruins and artifacts of the old days. Interesting stuff

I am a big fan of "roadside attractions" such as "the worlds largest rubber band ball" and Roadside America led me to this place while I was visiting my parents in Port Orange. (they didn't even know about it!!) Roadside America has it listed as "Bongoland" because of the quirky dinosaur statues that still dot the terrain. This place was... More

Loved the beautifully created gardens, the large live oak called the confederate oak due to the history of confederate soldiers that would camp under the tree. The sugar mill remains are a great look at the past.

Everything was so pretty but we didn't think to bring bug spray and we got eaten alive by mosquitoes. The dinosaurs weren't quite what we thought but they were cool enough. If you bring bug spray you will have an enjoyable visit. The volunteer was very friendly and knowledgeable.

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...
