  • This is one of the most beautiful gardens that I have ever been to, It takes about two hours to see if you keep a leisurely pace and really take in the views 
  • There is a lot of property to see here, but it's well organized and very accessible so you won't have any trouble navigating it. The vast array of plants are separated in to themed garden areas and offer plenty of photo opportunities. It's an impressive place, I understand the popularity as a wedding venue.
  • Must see. Best collection of semi tropical bamboo anywhere in florida. Also, many other thematic gardens.
  • We purchased discounts thru Groupon while our daughter was at Shands,United F. for double lung transplant so we went several times over three months,and we still drive two hours to come back. A lovely place.
  • Even if you aren't a kid, check out the kid's garden for the 'Bashful Briar'. Coolest plant I've ever seen.
  • Cool place to visit. Full of many plant species and with zen spots. Two path available, one of about a mile and the other of half a mile.
