We went on a very hot day in August and had the place virtually to ourselves. It's a beautiful garden you visit on a self guided tour. The price was $10/person and there are no military or other discounts. A nice break from the crowds.

50+ acres of gardens on a lake just outside downtown Orlando - many different gardens including rose, bamboo, azalea, food, jungle, palm and many more - great lake overlook - I like to go once a month

Me and my family had a great day out. Great place to walk about and chill out from the hustle of the theme parks.

Leu Gardens is so serene and beautiful. This tranquil palace is great for everyone and also an excellent place for engagement photos or graduation. It is not short on educational information and offers a variety of plants, flowers and trees not to mention butterflies.

Leu Gardens is a great place if you want a step up from a regular park. You can learn a ton about local plants and the movie events they have monthly are great!

We went on whim and had a great time. They were doing a "dinosaur exhibit" in the gardens. So using your map you'd follow the trail and learn some history on the giant reptiles. It was very tranquil and calm. It wasn't too hot at...More
