Cobblestone paths, manicured hedges, and cypress canopies define Kraft Azalea Gardens. This public park spans 4 hectares (11 acres) and is bordered by a lake on its north and west sides. The lake features a small dock for fishing, and the park offers benches for picnicking. Trails here lead visitors through 2 hectares (5 acres) of a section covered by landscaped gardens. The park is also home to a picturesque monument--a greek exedra--a semicircle of white colonnades. The park's romantic appeal and peaceful atmosphere make it a popular spot for wedding and engagement pictures.

    I've been going to this park since high school. It's a great place to sit and view Lake Maitland, a nice place to take a kid or dog to play outside, and it's perfect for family photos or romantic pix ...  more »

    Witter park is a rest on the side ... Kraft Azalea Gardens then, forget it. The streets to get there already are worth the walk, beautiful houses and beautiful gardens. It seems that we get in a typical movie. The Park is free, parking and clearly is to take a walk with calm ... enjoying the beautiful nature scene. Really charming!

    Stopped here during a Kayak trip. There was a shore we could pull our kayaks up on. Is a great place to watch the sunset. One person big clean bathroom. Very small park. Big beautiful cypress trees. Very shady park.

    We took a group of kids here for lunch. It's a beautiful park. We had always heard it was a popular place for weddings and photo shoots. While we were there we saw both. We sat on benches to eat - no picnic tables.

    I've been to this garden twice. The tree canopy is amazing and offers incredible shade on the hottest of days. Great for picnics. The lake view is very pretty and there are plenty of benches throughout the park.

    Gorgeous garden in the middle of a secluded neighborhood filled with beautiful homes. There is a beautiful dock, lots of tall trees, and beautiful pillars, perfect for a photoshoot. Great place to take a stroll and watch the sun rise/set!

    One of my favorite places. Go early while it's cool. Look for owls, among other birds
