Not many people know about this lovely park, and finding out about it can be a challenge. I have known people who live in Plant City less than 15 miles away who had never heard of it. Finding it with the GPS isn't even simple. But it is truly charming. Located adjacent is a very creative children's playground. A pleasant looking restaurant is adjacent that has a covered patio for dining that overlooks this lovely lake. A good place to stop as you escape from Orlando.

On Oct 27th 2012, my husband and I walked in there and got married. It was just the two of us, two witness, the photographer, and the lady who marred us. We were walking around downtown Lakeland and Lake Mirror taking our wedding photos, and decided to walk in to Hollis gardens and decided to get married there. Very nice, very pretty, and very calming.

A lovely garden with, it is said, over 10,000 flowers, plants, scrubs, etc.....and I have no reason to doubt it. Beautiful, serene spot overlooking an equally lovely lake. Easy to locate; plenty of parking; and the lcal residents are frendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

Go there! Its free, pretty, and your girlfriend will love it. Then you can shop a little in the downtown area on the other side of the lake.

Great small paradise along Lake Mirror. Well kept. Nice strolling areas., ponds, falls and different ecosystems. Nice restaurant nearby and children's park in walking distance.
