“A hidden GEM in Tallahassee to go visit.”

Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park
Ranked #7 of 84 things to do in Tallahassee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2012

What a great place for getting away from the rat race. A hidden gem in middle of town.

We got married in the park and it is a very special ;ace to hundreds of couples. IMO They do need to add a small RV campground by the lake. It would stay full and support park operations. It is right off of I-10 on Thomasville Road and near lots of good places to eat.

The gardner's cottage is a great place for a special party and can be booked by reservation at the gate house. Pops in park and other events are well worth seeing.

No matter what time of year, it's a beautiful place to see. Fall and winter are my favorite.

Maclay Gardens is a must for Christmas. The grounds are decorated for Christmas and there are always carolers are some other type of performers doing holiday music during holiday season. This garden is always lovely any time of year and nice exercise for everyone walking around the gardens.

We took our kids here not knowing how it would be. The weather was not so good, but our little girls really enjoyed running around here.

It's a garden. It's quiet. It's beautiful. It's a great place to have some quiet time, and it's right in town. There is an admission fee, so be prepared to pay to enter the gardens.
