Home to several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Harry P. Leu Gardens also lays claim to almost 20.3 hectares (50 acres) of warm-weather gardens. You can visit the gardens and wander among the lush greenery, discovering azaleas, citrus trees, hibiscus, vegetables, and more spread out over a multitude of different exhibits and themed areas. Keep an eye out for some of the centuries-old oak trees on the grounds. Stop by the on-site museum in the former house of the garden's founders, the Leus, and join a guided tour. You'll find a showcase of the life and times of the Leus dating from around the turn of the 20th century. Be sure to check the gardens' schedule for information on special events, showings, and activities. Plan to visit Harry P.

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!

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.
