Very lovely grounds to walk and explore. The trees, flowers, river views and homes are stunning. The guided audio tour awesome and very informative. This is a perfect way to spend a couple hours learning a piece of our history.

Visited the park during our trip to Florida and visit to Edison & Ford Winter houses. You can see all the plants and trees planted by Edison in the search for cheap rubber source during the beginning of 20th century.

I really enjoyed the trees there. The whole park is wonderful. You have a hand held radio that explains all of the exhibits to you. You can take your time. I would go again.

Seeing the place where Thomas Edison had his winter headquarters has been educational for us. We have been there numerous times because we take our Florida visitors there often. The trees on the property are an attraction all by themselves!

This property has a beautiful location with unique plantings and places to sit along the water to relax. If you enjoy historical places and have a nice day to spare it is worth the visit.

The trees and flowers in this park are a joy to walk thru. You can just imagine how tranquil it was for the Edisons to stay here with their familiys. Nice that it is maintained and shared with us now!

Clean little park. Lot of children running and having a good time . We didn't see any pan handlers hanging around. Trees and flowers very nicely kept.

Sorry, don't remember if the tour guide even told us. Tip, if you go take the guided tour, worth every penny.
