“Breakfast Getaway”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

I really enjoy going over to Hollis Gardens to walk around, people watch and have a wonderful out door breakfast. The view is nice, service is friendly and the food is good. A perfect way to start the day.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great place to go read a book, while surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers (even though you're right near a highway), it's an escape. Also a great place for a date, picnic, wedding, homecoming/prom photos, etc. Even in Winter, the trees and greenery are still very pretty, but Spring and Summer are the most colorful times. Such a perfect spot for this, right next to Lake Mirror and Downtown.

“a real treat”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

This garden is beautiful to walk through. It's a perfect place to have a wedding, go on a date, or eat a picnic. It is well maintained. Restrooms are nearby. When you get done visiting the garden, be sure to walk around the lake a time or two. If you have kids there is an amazing play area nearby. If you happen to be in Lakeland you must stop here.

“A quiet, beautiful garden.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This wonderful garden over looks Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland. It has a wide range of plants and flowers. It is well landscaped and carefully cared for. It is just nice to walk around and revel in the scenery and the plants and flowers. It is a great gift from the Hollis Family to the city of Lakeland.
