Beautiful, quite park with lots of gorgeous plants and flowers to check out. My three y/o loved all the lizards. And I can now say I have seen a red pineapple and a giant lubber grasshopper.

Sadly the Mead Garden in Orlando is quite devastated from the hurricane. In February many leaves have been stripped from the trees, New Growth appears. Several trees were uprooted and lay fallen. It's hard to imagine what it used to look like. The bathroom facilities...More
