Beautiful outdoor setting. If I make it back there I would come on a warmer day, bring a book or sketch pad and a lunch and I would plan to just sit and enjoy the garden views. We came on a windy, chilly day so couldn't fully appreciate its outdoor beauty.

This sculpture garden sits on one of the lakes in Winter Park. It is a small garden but definitely worth a visit. The scenery is fantastic, the staff is very helpful/knowledgeable and of course the gardens/sculptures are terrific. Nice quiet place to reflect and get away from the crowds.

The Albin Polasek house, museum, and sculpture garden is an island of inspiration amid the growing bustle of downtown Sanford. This is a small museum, carefully curated and passionately described by a team of well trained docents. Well worth the brief 1-2 hours you will spend here.

We picked this place to visit because of the reviews. We did not heed the suggestion to need two hours so we didn't get to your the house. They have limited tour times so call ahead! We can't wait to go back and finish what we started!
