There were interesting things to see at this attraction, but the property requires more upkeep. Looks a little rundown.

Go to the Florida Botanical Gardens off Walshingham Road in Largo/Seminole area. That one is worth seeing. This one is just like an oversized garden from your backyard. It is nothing sepcial.

I can never get over how beautiful this campus is. I have a lot of pride, and I'm not even a Bull. Way to go, USF!

Not so well-finished as I aspected, anyway a good place to spend some time waiting for a friend attending USF.
In April there was only few plants in bloom but I saw one big bird and some reptiles that were really exiting.
Squirrels everywhere to feed. Not so many butterflies as you could aspect in the Butterfly Garden.
With a good cam with zoom anyway you could take amazing photos

This was a nice relaxing way to spend time together in the middle of a busy campus. Walking through the gardens gave us plenty of areas to take pictures and just spend time talking. There are many pretty views and areas to discover.
