Was impressed with the gardens. We were fortunate to visit during the dinosaur exhibit. I thought it was the perfect amount of time to tour the grounds, and see all, which was about 1 1/2 hours. Just a heads up. You will not see many flowers blooming. Basically the native plants of Florida. My favorite was the huts totally built... More

Beautiful grounds, well manicured and cared for mostly by volunteer staff. Lots of history as well, before Disney there was McKee. An easy walk for anyone challenged with mobility. Highly recommended for anyone liking true Florida outdoors and peace of mind.

This is a beautiful place, created in the 1920s by a landscape architect from the Olmstead firm (Central Park).

We visited here on our recent road trip.Very quiet and peaceful surroundings and all the planting is thoughtfully planned out and in excellent condition. Not the biggest place but we spent a delightful couple of hours here.

We went the day after a very heavy rain so some of the paths weren't passable. Even with that minor issue we totally enjoyed the day. It was a pleasant walk with beautiful trees, ponds and flowers to see. Plant life was nicely marked so we knew what we were seeing. The workers (volunteers) were very nice and were willing... More
