“Large beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Large beautifully designed and maintained semi-tropical gardens. Eventhough they are noted for large varieties of camellias, there were many exotic plants from Asia, etc. The gorgeous rose garden was in full bloom in early December. The Leu home has an interesting history and was well presented by volunteer. Nice to see a slice of the REAL Florida; a peaceful change from all the theme park crowds. No restauant, but since you can't see it all in a couple of hours bring a picnic. There are interesting looking ethnic restaurants in the neighborhood.

“Breathtaking Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful property well maintained. I enjoyed a peaceful walk with the one I love and gathered loads of information and photos of plants and trees that thrive in our beautiful region. Great place to enjoy peace and nature in Orlando!

“An oasis of beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The house and gardens are beautifully kept and presented. The gardens provide inspiration for creative gardening ideas in Central Florida growing conditions. My mother and I had a lovely day out.

“Peaceful Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

If you are looking for a quiet and scenic walk, then Harry P. Leu Gardens is the perfect place. You can get in free on Monday mornings. The added fee to tour the Leu home is well worth it. Many different flowers, plants and trees to take in. Highly recommend a visit.
