Good place for an afternoon stroll. Beautiful gardens, brick pathways and one of the most breathtaking views I can imagine over the lake. I have filmed several weddings at this location, it is that good.

We spent a pleasant two hours walking in these gardens which were well laid out, and I would imagine at other times of the year would be even more beautiful. There had been a scarecrow competition and it was great fun to view the exhibits.

The park was nice it was hard to find the trails that would lead you to the reflecting pool and stuff like that. They were putting up figurines that were really pretty. Overall one of the nicest places that we saw on our adventure.

Another beautiful Florida State Park. Slowly wander through this botanical paradise, surrounded by exotic flowers. Stumble across bridges, fountains, and lakes in a park reminiscent of a palace garden that is being overtaken again by wilderness. Great location for weddings, bridal and engagement photo shoots,...More

Absolutely beautiful any time of year, but can be crowded on holidays. A great place for family photos, or to just break away from capital city life.

I have been to the gardens and parc several times and these have never disappointed. The gardens have an additional entry fee at certain times of the year when most of the flowers are in bloom. It's really great for a nice walk and if...More
