Great way to spend 2-3 hours. Very large botanical garden surrounding the Leu home. Must be close to 100 acres. Nice walking paths with plenty of benches to sit and reflect. You can explore at your own pace. Lots of camelias and spots to take pictures. the overlook on the lake was a great spot to watch fish and wading birds up close.

I love going to this place because it just so mind relaxing and the people there are so friendly. They also have a time of the month where they show movies and it's also very quiet and the people are so helpful we will go again

To be fair this garden is well kept nice walkways excellent buildings good maps and parking. The rose garden which is the central feature of the park has all been cut back within a foot of the ground. It is a collection of dead looking sticks. While the rest of the park is very good and well labeled you can see the same things in the area's abundant free parks. It definately is not worth the price.

Peaceful and lovely break from the Orlando chaos. Spent the day there...and even had a snack while on rocking chairs on the mansion's deck. Great flowers, cacti, landscaping and butterflies!

My husband and I visited here on March 14 and spent about two hours walking around gardens and taking tour of house. This is a peaceful and serene setting - there is a variety of plants and flowers. Rose garden was not in bloom and should be in bloom in April - probably better to visit in April. There are sunny and shaded areas so visitors can avoid being in sunlight entire time. I did see some young children visiting here but teenagers might not enjoy.
