You can visit the gardens and wander among the lush greenery, discovering azaleas, citrus trees, hibiscus, vegetables, and more spread out over a multitude of different exhibits and themed areas. Keep an eye out for some of the centuries-old oak trees on the grounds. Stop by the on-site museum in the former house of the garden's founders, the Leus, and join a guided tour.

  • A very nice break from the main tourist attractions. Nice to walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet. Mansion currently closed due to storm damage from Irma.  more »
  • Great attraction to do for a break from the theme parks. Nice to walk without crowds. Cute frog sculptures added to the views. More than worth the price.  more »
  • This was the first stop on our vacation. After a nerve racking drive on I4, we were surprised to see this gem. I had put this on our go see list because it was supposed to be free for the first Monday...  more »

  • This place is great even on the hottest of days. Huge shade trees are everywhere. Some of the best might be the giant live oaks covered in moss and the bamboo forrests. The flowers are beautiful and smell wonderful. The entire gardens are handicap accessible so do not worry if you or a family member need a wheel chair. Currently they have a scavenger hunt exhibit featuring Enchanted Fairy Doors. It was a lot of fun fir my kids as we walked through the different garden areas, and gave them something to look for. Join today you won't regret it!
  • My boyfriend and I went here on our last day of vacation because it was only $10 to get in. There was a map provided of the garden and scattered water fountains to drink from throughout the park. It took us a few hours to walk through. Very relaxing and very beautiful. The plants had markers so you knew what they were.
  • Took a class about raised garden beds and how to grow vegetables and herbs. It was amazing! For $16 bucks, I learned an incredible amount. The instructor was Robert and he's the director of the grounds. He was very knowledgeable and funny. The class was originally scheduled until 11am but he stayed and answered questions as long as people were there, even through the rain. I would definitely recommend the class.
  • We really had a lot of fun here! We took the 2yo to the gardens while the older child was at space camp and bou was it worth it! The fairy doors were such a treat and the well kept grounds were just really beautiful to wall through. We especially enjoyed being able to see the alligator :)
  • We had the great opportunity to see an outside movie at Leu Gardens. What fun. We got there early. Got our chairs set up. Had our picnic and then got to enjoy roaming the gardens while we waited for it to turn dark. The movie was funny and it was a great way to relax and spend time with family.
