The grounds surrounding the Edison-Ford Winter Home Museum is worthy of your time. Just lovely to see all the exotic trees brought here by Thomas Edison, not to mention the Caloosahatchee River flowing alongside the estate. Very peace filled with many different species of flowers and bushes.

I was surprised about most of information of two outstanding persons used to live there. I mean Edison and Ford. I don't know they were friends and Ford even worked for Edison. Park is awesome, and we were lucky about a weather.

We have been there several times, by ourselves and taking guests and all are blown away by the beauty and history. We didn't get there this year but driving by, the Christmas decorations were awesome, a must see.

Lots of shady trees, benches and a spectacular view of the great waters. Nice that it is by the Edison and Ford Winter Estates

the grounds, the cottages and the history make this a special experience. Not inexpensive though for tickets. But worth the price.

Interesting to see the samples of various flora brought from around the world. The large banyan tree and those gigantic fig trees are spectacular!

Across the street from the Ford/Edison Estates is the entrance/gift shop/museum/parking, and the impressive trees around the park. The staff has done an excellent job identifying all the species and has signs by each one to describe them. Fascinating!
