Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens reviews
Really interesting history here as well as neat Florida gardens, probably an hour or so to see most of it more »
Such a well kept outdoor space for a garden manned by volunteers! So many plants were labeled. Beautiful live oak trees are massive in size! Lots of information boards on the Sugar Mill ruins... more »
this is a great hidden gem. It has some interesting gardens, and a audabon trail through the back. The Gnomes have a cool home too. But the butterfly garden is the best, lots of flowers and milkweed..... more »
This place was interesting and pretty. The remnants of the sugar mill were cool. Looking through the old building. Then my husband and I walked around the paths the flowers and plants were amazing. Some of the biggest elephant ears I've ever seen. We are here on a chill vacation so this has been perfect.
My husband and I took our little kiddo here, and we had a blast! The gardens are obviously well-loved; everything was lush and green and pristine. There's some ruins of a theme park called Bongoland here, too, and that was our son's favorite part! There are dinosaur statues made from concrete and chicken wire and they are so cool and totally worth visiting. We also found a neat little library where you take a book and leave a book. And it's FREE, though donations are accepted and encouraged. I love these gardens and I will certainly be returning.
Very tranquil, beautiful place! Great place to just walk around and step off the grid for a brief period. Informative plaques tell you about the numerous foliage, various pieces of history survived from the Sugar Mill and it's awesome to see...to touch...they sell plants at cheap prices that are native to the Florida region...nice walk for almost any age!
Been here a couple times and it's a prime example of relics of the past coexisting with the beauty of nature. It's really nice to take walks in, take some photos, and of course check out the Bongoland dinosaurs. It makes me really sad that the giant T-Rex recently fell over but I'm glad the others still exist, though it'd be pretty neat if they found a way to bring it back. Overall wonderful place and I can see why people have weddings here.
An interesting piece of local history. The grounds are really beautiful. Bring bug spray. This is best viewed October through May when the days are cooler.
