This is a beautiful garden sanctuary surrounding a lake with roses that bloom all year long. View the garden, walk the lake and see the swans and ducks. The Bistro nearby has great salads, sandwiches and soup in a pretty location.

This is a must-see in Lakeland that my high school resident friend showed me and my husband on quick visit to the city. Beautifully landscaped with perfect picture backgrounds everywhere and lake views with an on site cafe. Very nice.

The gardeners are friendly and ready to answer questions. The gardens are beautiful. It is great to have the children's play area and the Peggy Brown building and the Bistro nearby.

The gardens are small and you can view them in under 30 minutes but take the time and stroll around the walking path of the lake. There are some great picture taking backgrounds in this area.
