These gardens are a great educational experience- well maintained trails and mostly good signage. Many of the trails are solid, so are handicapped accessible. Besides all the fauna, we saw turtles, birds and bunnies. It was a great way to spend a cooler afternoon.

These are lovely and expansive gardens. We were a little early for all the blooms, but what we got was a peaceful stroll through many different settings with enough plants flowering to satisfy us. Springtime here must be stunning.

If you can only go to one, I'd say see Sunken Gardens, but this garden is free and a lovely stroll ; we did see a couple alligators here; the adjoining Heritage museum was awesome. If I had known I would have taken a quicker...More

A free park, its no Sunken Garden, but a great park. Really enjoyed the outdoors, the plants, ponds, butterflies. Staff was helpful, grab a map and wander around. Would be great for special events. A local treasure, take advantage.

Two adults visited the gardens in mid-February 2019 for about two hours. Overall a pleasant visit. Easy walking. Lots of shade. Many benches. Interesting plants, many if not most with signs identifying the plants. Free admission. Small visitor center on site. Restrooms available. Co-located with...More

I think Savory’s is probably closest, about 1/2 mile away. We eat there upon occasion, decent food, reasonable prices, good deal on earlybirds. Google Savory’s and see what you think. Lasagna is very good. A bit past that... More
