  • Really cool historical place with great stories behind it. Walk the whole park to see great history, pretty flowers, and a really weird amusement park that was shut down many years ago before amusement parks were cool. Really quirky, cool place. Have never been somewhere like it. Definitely worth a 20-30 minute visit and walk around.
  • Pretty enough, but way too small. You can walk through all of it in an hour and feel like you're missing something. Has signs that contradict each other historically, which makes me wonder about how much of the history presented there is correct.
  • Really nice place, and appears to be maintained by volunteers. Free but would recommend giving a donation. We have 2 small kids and they loved it.
  • Ok one of the hidden treasures of Port Orange. Loads of history. A very nice place to just spend a little time with family. The garden itself is well maintained and would be a great place for a wedding or event. Very surprising piece of paradise.
  • Beautiful park with plenty of history. I really like how they made board walks through the sugar Mill ruins so you could get a much closer look. My grandchildren enjoyed hiking the many trails. They seemed to notice all the bits of wimsy throughout, Wind chimes in trees, little toy dinosaurs, and funny signs.
