“Don't forget your camera!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

You can enjoy any afternoon strolling through this beautiful garden. THere are also workshops and classes, even for the beginners. THis is a space for weddings and the receptions, it is so special a spot. You need not go far in central Florida, to enjoy the beauty of this special spot.

“Unexpected find in the centre of Orlando”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

Lovely place to visit and walk round. The gardens are extensive and have a good route round, just make sure you get the map so you dont miss anything. There are also tours of the house which was decorated for Christmas when we went. The tour is very interesting and explains the history of the property. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

These Gardens are owned by the city of Orlando and well worth a visit. It is really a nice change of pace from the theme parks.

“Must visit botanical garden in downtown Orlando area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

It is a hidden gem in downtown Orlando. Beautiful botanical garden where is one of locals' favorite place to visit. Rose gardens are just a beauty. Many workshops and mini concerts are available, so should check their events. Every first Monday of month is FREE admission in the morning.

“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

There is not a nicer garden in the US. I have been to many from East Coast to West Coast and in Europe. Leu Gardens is a class by itself. Don't miss it.
