We stopped in mid-week with a couple of friends. We all really enjoyed the visit. Parking is easy and free and admission was only $10 per person. The gardens sit on a small lake and the small historic house on site made for an interesting and not too long tour. Even though it had been cold and rainy earlier in... More

I have visited many botanical gardens from Florida to California. This one was merely adequate, nothing special. Camelias were in bloom as were some roses. Gardens were well kept, fairly well labled plants, but just blah, as if no inspired horticulturalist took part. No special plant groupings or rare plants, just walk around and see whatever the Leu's left behind.... More

This attraction is a diamond in the rough for adults and children. For the children, they learn to read a map to discover hidden life like figures of dinosaurs from the Jurassic Period hidden in the foliage. For the adults, the peaceful surroundings from the lagoon lookout to the fragrant rose garden with ease your mind and stress of you... More

Both my husband loved the beautiful grounds and especially the tour of the Leu house, which was very informative and beautiful. A trip back in time. A wonderful way to spend a few hours.

Always peaceful and beautiful with many new displays to keep things new throughout the year. Check out free Mondays once a month-not for the next several months due to the dinosaur display upcoming. Worth the visit!

I was checking out places to visit in Orlando when I noticed this place, so drove up the I4 on a sunny day. Staff were very friendly, plenty of parking and lovely walks through the gardens, which are over 50 acres. I was pleased also that the cost was reasonable too, and would recommend this for those looking for a... More

Our group of 4 couples decided to spend the afternoon at the gardens on Sunday, following the Citrus Bowl. We had a wonderfully leisure stroll through the gardens and visited the Leu Museum as well. The pleasant weather helped, but the entire day was delightful.

we really enjoyed the gardens...you can walk around and take your time or go for a tour of the Leu House museum...it is a great way to spend an afternoon. They have many activities during each week that you could attend....we were visiting Orlando and decided to do something different instead of the parks...so worth our time

I took my mother here when she was visiting. The grounds are beautiful and the house tour gives a history of the Orlando that many people do not know. Very peaceful and the gardens go on and on. They also host many classes and special events, so definitely something to see in Orlando.

The gardens are beautiful, and great for a zen-like experience. I the premises, they also have the Leu House Museums with great stories of the owners living there
