This isn't really an attraction in the sense we're accustomed to but its a very attractive garden that is expertly tended in a place where it's beautiful year round. If you're downtown walk through and take a stroll around Lake Mirror's promenade and the children's park named for a former mayor of Lakeland who was an avid gardener herself. This... More

This place is so soothing to the soul. I love strolling through the gardens enjoying all of the exquisite flowers and it is great to hear the classical music playing. My son is now a fan as well since apparently quite a few Pokemon frequent the gardens!

This is very neat Lake Mirror, and another very nice place to spend an afternoon. The price is right ( FREE), and it is very beautiful. Another Lakeland improvement.

The beautiful plantings and soft music make this one of the most peaceful places for a respite moment. You might even witness a wedding.

I just had some time to kill so I took a walk around Lake mirror or walked around the garden. It has been a few years since I was here.. but I remember there use to be koi in the back pond. Now it's empty (I was a little disappointed). Anyhow, the flowers are still looking nice. I didn't really... More

This a great place to take a nice peaceful relaxing walk while looking at flowers and listening to soft music - at no charge! This park is a perfect place to take pictures! Continue your walk around Lake Mirror to see ducks, swans...rest on one of the many benches. Lakeland is beautiful!

The City of Lakeland does a fine job in keeping this area clean and green, Many venues use this park for weedings, parties, Car shows, and other various outings. Nice 2-3 hour history stroll.

A great place to spend some quiet time enjoying the beauty of the garden. Well groomed and maintained. Take a walk around the lake or lunch at the bistro. Numerous places nearby to get something to eat.
