These gardens are beautifully light up during the holidays. Each year they add a few new lights. They always have music and entertainment. Place it on your "must see" list every year! It's now our tradition with friends!

The flora and fona were beautiful. Pleasingly landscaped designed to delight the eye. Many areas to just sit, relax and soak in the tranquility.

This garden is very nice. There are lots of tropical plants and even a wedding garden to be seen. There are restrooms and a water fountain. A relaxing stroll in the Florida heat.
