On the National Register of Historic Places, Bok Tower Gardens sits atop one of central Florida's highest points. Spanning nearly 100 hectares (250 acres), this site features winding paths and secluded clearings. The Singing Tower, a 62 m (205 ft) tall Gothic-Art Deco structure, features a carillon with 60 large bells. You can wander through the gardens to find many varieties of blooming flowers, endangered plants, and tranquil pools, many designed by famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. While in the park, keep your eyes open for the 126 different bird species, as well as tortoises and snakes, which call the gardens home. Make Bok Tower Gardens a part of your Lake Wales vacation plans using our Lake Wales attractions planner.

This was out second trip this year. Got there just in time for the 1 o'clock Carillon concert too. My super smoking hot girl friend is crazy for that carillon music! Head up to the viewing area...

Really lovely gardens and very helpful staff. Lots of FL native plants. .nice pathways....1/2 price for August for FL residents. Cafe has good clean salads and wraps. Nice area for children to play and experience gardening. Good kitchen garden which demonstrates what does grow well in Central FL . Nice gift store with some plants for sale too. The Buck house is interesting but does have a separate fee to view. It is an amazingly well built place.
This is one of most beautiful gardens. The staff take pride in keeping these grounds clean and lively. I love how they have a special in August . To where it is half off for Florida locals. The singing tower goes off at three . Very relaxing chimes. They have a cafe here with fountain drinks. There are many adventures on the hikes with such beauty that mother nature has to offer.
