My husband and I went here as a low-key, COVID, anniversary day trip and we were thoroughly impressed. I saw pictures online and had to see for myself. It did not disappoint. The ride in was questionable but I was game for an adventure (like you don’t quite need 4-wheel drive, but it makes you wonder a bit). I’ll include some photos but be warned - none of them do it justice. We have been to Rock City, near Chattanooga many times and it reminded me of that, just a lot hotter ;) There were so many different types of flowers and plants all placed along the pathways with labels and each little area had name plates like Sonia’s Garden, similar to Rock City! It was a 1/2 hour drive from the Herlong Mansion in Micanopy which is another gem I’d recommend too.

A beautiful botanical garden with cascading waterfalls, 50+ garden displays, koi ponds and more! We spent an hour and half waking the grounds. Very interesting story on the property as it used to be a polluted abandoned quarry mine, and the new owner transformed into a stunning garden.

Beautiful scenery but water is not as pretty as the website shows. The road in is not smooth but it is a hidden gem to explore. I will definitely go back.

We are recovering from 2 years of flooding. Duck weed escaped from a small pool. We look forward you your next visit!

I'm not sure what happened with folks who left negative reviews; this is one of the best attractions we've ever been to! Yes, the road is a bit bumpy, but the key is to follow the speed limit and signs (there are signs everywhere). Our little sedan had no trouble at all. At the office, a kind staff member gave us a map and suggested path to take. There was so much to see that we had to backtrack a few times! Make sure to visit the "off path" sites such as the gardens (clearly listed on map). It's also a good idea to bring water, snacks, and bug spray. They sell water at the office (not sure about snacks), but we had our own supplies. They actually encourage that on the website - to bring your own lunch - and there are many quiet places to stop for a bite/drink. On our way out, we noticed 'Eagle's Landing' and decided to stop. What a serene space! We would have driven right past had it not been for the sign. It was a highlight of our trip. We'll certainly be back when we return to the area, hopefully this Fall.

This place looks really nice and it’s a great way to spend 1 to 2 hours. We took our dogs throughout the facility and the views were great. One thing I would like to see less of his garden hoses all over the property.
