Beautiful!!!! Stroll through the gardens and visit the fish pond. Take a walk around the lake and enjoy feeding the ducks. They have benches you can sit on. There is a childrens play park there also.

“Hollis is happening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The lovely Hollis Gardens next to Mirror Lake in downtown Lakeland is a must if you love flowers and a wonderful walk in sheer beauty. It is free and the guys who take care of it are the best guides you could have to learn about flowers, vegetables and herbs that do well in Florida. The Rose Garden is gorgeous and the Garden Bistro is a gourmet's delight. We took 30 people there and had a great tour and lunch. Green Thumbs Dave from Solivita

“European Style Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Hollis gardens is a very nice place to visit any time of the year. They are always changing out plants and it looks beautiful with whatever is in bloom. They have many rare plants, too. Even if one is not a plantophile, the peacefulness of the gardens is worth the visit. There is a small restaurant close by and an area for children to play. There are also bathroom facilities located nearby.

“Beauty and Tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This free garden is open year-round and has different flowers depending on the time of year. My favorite spot is “the grotto” a cool refreshing waterfall area. I love to go sit there. In addition they have several sculptures and other water features. It is adjacent to the Lake Mirror Promenade and several other parks and sculpture.
