  • Very peaceful and charming small garden, located in lake mirror in downtown Lakeland. Took a morning walk and stumbled upon the foliage and sculptures. Worth a pleasant walk through.  more »
  • This is a great little park. I often walk through it in the afternoons. The gardeners are courteous and will answer questions and show you examples. A great place to take pictures of family and friend...  more »
  • There is also a restaurant next door which has great lunches. Garden is a pleasant lunch diversion. Small but really quite pretty spot along southern edge of lake.  more »

  • So beautiful! Good parking and nice to just relax and walk around and enjoy being outside. .
  • The actual garden is beautiful but has very limited hours! Lovely, easily accessible from the nearby park, Poor Porker coffee shop, and surrounding restaurants. Great for a stroll (romantic or not) around the lake, especially at sunset. You can always count on seeing people with their dogs, and probably someone taking wedding pictures as well. Restrooms are directly around the corner from the entrance, by the park.
  • An absolutely beautiful garden, thanks to the Hollis family-Publix president Mark Hollis and His wife, Lynn donated $1 million for the construction of gardens at Lake Mirror in 1998-the Hollises also put $500,000 of Publix stock into a perpetual care fund for the garden. The Susan B. Anthony sycamore is a cutting from the tree at her grave, and Elvis Presley's weeping willow is a cutting from a weeping willow at Graceland. The gardens design and plants tell a story of Florida's history, and the gardens is a very popular site for weddings and special events. The flowers, fountains, ponds and the lake in the background is very picturesque. Highly recommended 👍👍
  • Great place to learn about plants that thrive in Florida, well maintained and beautiful place for pictures!
  • Need public restrooms. A snack bar would be a definite improvement, and make families want to stay longer. Old fashioned swings would be a great addition. Thank you so very much for remembering 'Blinky', and old Lakeland.
