Really wish I could see the gardens when the camellias bloom, but it was very attractive even in the "down time" of late summer. Property is well maintained; the Leu House is interesting and tour guides were informative, most pleasant. Plus it is air-conditioned (hot day when we visited!).

This is one of the few places to visit in Orlando not made for crowds and thrill seekers. The grounds are quite expansive with lots of labeled plants, along a lake. The $10 entry fee is very reasonable especially when thinking about the theme park fees. Of course, go in the morning when it's cooler, although there is lots of... More

Leu Gardens is one of those little hidden gems in Orlando. If you've got a few hours to kill, this is an excellent place to check out. Beyond the beautiful gardens, they've even incorporated family movie nights under the stars, concerts, classes, select FREE admission days and yearly plant sales. I've never been disappointed on any of my visits!

We had our wedding here in October of 2015 and just loved the venue. So many options to choose from in the gardens and even an indoor option in case of rain. I definitely recommend checking out the gardens if you are nearby and make sure to take the tour of the Leu House.

You could spend days walking around this beautiful park. Make sure you tour the house. Lots of plants, paths to explorer and a nice gift shop.

We go as often as we can weather and time permitting. If you are looking for a tranquil place to get away or a scenic amazing place for a wedding or other event you just found it. Friendly helpful people one of our favorite places to get away from it all.

This was my favorite place to visit during my week in Orlando! I tend toward quiet outdoor, activities and the gardens delivered that and much more! The drive from the hotel was a bit frantic but as I stepped out of my car and onto the grounds here a peaceful calm instantly washed over me. This place has a wonderful... More

We all have a place that we find calming, and this is it for me. I visit several times a year, and for the hotter months, the first Monday is free, so get there early before the crowds, and kids, arrive, and assure yourself a place to park. Something different is blooming every month of the year, and there are... More

This is a wonderful park and gardens close to the center of the city. The house of the owner has been restored and is available for very informative tours. Like many botanical gardens, it is divided into sections so there is pretty much always something to see that is in bloom. The only thing I dislike is that they do... More

We went to Leu Gardens for one of our non-park days rather than sitting by the pool at the villa. We're members of the National Trust so were looking for something similar in the USA. Pleasantly surprised by how attractive the gardens are given their urban location, free parking was also a nice touch Some visitors have commented on the... More
