  • There was a "fairy" theme going on with hidden fairy doors strung out across the entire garden and tons of families were there trying to find all 20 of them. You could easily spend 2 hours or more...

  • This is one of the gems of Orlando, that not everyone knows about surprisingly. 50 acres of botanical gardens with many different areas and types of plants and flowers to admire. Years ago we were lucky enough to be married in the rose garden, and it was absolutely stunning. They have sections for so many other things as well as many events. This time of year they have their annual plant and flower sale, which is a sight to behold. So many vendors come in and sell high-quality often uncommon plants.In the vegetable garden, they had specific offerings of vegetables and herbs that you take home and grow. There are numerous trails throughout the garden, some secluded some open. We’ve enjoyed coming here many times and just sitting and admiring all that is present. Definitely check it out, and take a look for the many special events, like movie night which is always a good time.
  • A beautiful set of gardens in Orlando The entrance is located at the intersection of Corrine Dr and N Forest Ave. The park takes up 50 acres on the south side of Lake Rowena. There are two parking lots. One is near to the main building and one is just to the south. Together they can hold about 150 vehicles. The entry is through the main building and costs about $15/person. The gardens are used for events. The day that we visited, there was a wedding event set up outside the house on the south of the grounds and the reception was set for the main building. It seemed a perfect place for it. The gardens are self-guided and have lots of paths to follow. Recently, they have made a “dragon” challenge treasure hunt that is a lot of fun. People have to find clues and decrypt the message that leads you to the treasure. The gardens have large dragons and night-time lighting for these very large creatures. The gardens are beautiful and have many paths and descriptions of the many plants around the grounds. Overall, this is a wonderful set of gardens that is very pleasant to walk through.
