  • Amazing little hidden gem. Beautiful well kept gardens with different themes. Butterfly garden is just beautiful and the rose garden is truly special and romantic. Plenty of space to have an adorable picnic. They sell annual passes at different levels and sizes that include discounts and activities. Definitely worth a visit if you’re a tourist or a local! There’s more to Orlando than Disney!
  • Very much enjoyed my walk through the botanical gardens. I only spent about 90 minutes walking through and I surely missed several pathways to walk and explore. Lovely insect between art and nature throughout the garden, with many potential resting areas throughout. Bring water with you, as it is warm, but would definitely recommend.
