Home to several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Harry P. Leu Gardens also lays claim to almost 20.3 hectares (50 acres) of warm-weather gardens. 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. You'll find a showcase of the life and times of the Leus dating from around the turn of the 20th century. Be sure to check the gardens' schedule for information on special events, showings, and activities. Plan to visit Harry P.

Harry P. Leu Gardens Reviews
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 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.
