A beautiful, tranquil and well maintained place for an enjoyable stroll, plus they have some fabulous events from some truly spectacular displays of Christmas lights to the St Valentine's mass wedding ceremony! It doesn't hurt that the Heritage Village is literally next door!

I think we were there at the wrong time of year ... not too much was blooming. That said, the gardens are set up very nicely. The walk was peaceful. We enjoyed looking at the names of the various palms and vegetation. There were adirondack chairs along the areas to sit and look at the water, and benches etc in... More

We've been taking our friends and family here since we discovered this lovely garden a year ago. Great place to walk around to soak in the gorgeous surroundings. And learn something along the way. It's meticulously maintained and tagged so you know what you're looking at. Best of all, it's FREE!

If there's one thing you notice between flying in to Tampa International Airport and driving to the Gulf Coast, it's how ugly humans have made Florida. You get a steady visual diet of asphalt; nasty little strip malls--many well past their sell-by date, collapsing and abandoned; overly-tamed, sterile suburban tracts and traffic, traffic, TRAFFIC. It's hard to believe it was... More

Spent two totally enjoyable hours roaming through this garden. There is such diversity in the plants throughout, pretty settings all over the place for sitting and enjoying the garden as well as for special events and, as a gardener, I really appreciate all the signage. Never have seen so many different types of vines. Staffers were knowledgeable and helpful. 90,000... More

We had a family outing to walk through the gardens and view the decorations and lights. We were not disappointed. The decorations were unique and the lighting awesome. They have a little cafe type food stand where you can purchase very reasonable refreshments. A must see event for the holiday season. Well mannered dogs care welcome making it a family... More

I love walking at the Botanical Gardens. It is never the same, the gardens constantly change. I always take visitors to the area there and they are amazed all that beauty is free. Oh ... and if you are into the game Pokémon Go it is a great place to go catch some!
