We really did not expect much but were pleasantly surprised with our visit to these gardens which are part of the Gage Hotel complex. Don't miss them when you are there. Expertly maintained, there are a delight.

The gardens were a bit "less" than I expected but are well kept. I would not want to do it during the heat of the summer!

Nice place to walk in the morning. They have a small putting green for some family fun. Most of the landscaping of flowers was nonexistent due to the cooler weather, but the rest was well maintained.

Beautiful gardens and I’m certain even more so in the Spring with flowers blooming. Be sure to take a walk through the gardens if staying in Marathon.

We walked less than 10 minutes from the Gage Hotel to the Gage Gardens. It is a dog-friendly garden with an off-leash area in the back. It is beautifully landscaped with beautiful flowers, fountains, and a pond. My only complaint is that all of the...More

I made two visit the 24 hours we were in Marathon. My morning walk was great as the sun arose followed by a peaceful walk with my wife. Well done, Gage!!

The gardens are far more extensive, greener, and prettier than we even imagined. Such a beautiful area to relax, take a picnic, walk your dog, or just a stroll.
