This place is a treat to have downtown on Lake Mirror. Hollis gardens is a delightful surprise with the formal garden rooms, fern grotto, butterfly garden and Koi pond. It's free to visit. It's a popular place to see photographers snapping pics of families and there's usually weddings on the weekends (which there's a fee). It's a peaceful place to visit on a sunny afternoon, especially to escape a busy life to connect with nature for a few minutes.

This is a small garden at downtown Lakeland, part of the Lake Mirror. It belongs to the City and it can be reserved for weddings. Perfect for sweet sixteen and prom pics. It opens certain hours a day, sometimes closed due to a weeding. It won't take you hours to see it, perhaps one but you can visit the local antique Shops, General Shop, Harrys Sea Food Rest, Garden Bistro, eat ice crean at the Hersheys Ice cream shop, eat steak at Texas Cattle.

It's been quite sometime since I've been to this garden, but think it's okay based on it's location. Could be a little better if wasn't in downtown Lakeland.

When we have guests in town, I love to take them down to the gardens and wander among the plants and different rooms that have been created. The view of Lake Mirror is great. There are plenty of spots to sit down and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
