“Love it but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I love it but wish it was a bit bigger. I am looking to get married somewhere and it's 1k here, $500+ for renting it and $500+ to put down but will get back after the event. It's a nice garden still, but a bit pricey to rent out for 2 hours...

“Beautiful Sub-tropical gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Variety of garden rooms with different themes. Unusual plants for most nontropical places. There was a beautiful wedding going on in some of the rooms while we were there.

“Date with My Wife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Hollis Gardens is a great place to walk around in downtown Lakeland. We went on a weekday afternoon and it wasn't crowded at all. There were birds everywhere which made for some great pictures. We brought a picnic lunch with us and ate at one of the benches near the lake. It was noisy at times though since there is a fire station and railroad nearby. There are gardens which are normally open; however, they were not open that day. If you're in Lakeland, I definitely recommend visiting!

“Gorgeous Garden!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

We love going to this garden to relax. They have classic music playing in the background as you walk in. Always well kept. Just beautiful! Nice Koi Pond! Popular spot for local weddings and pictures.
