We stopped by this nearby attraction for a quick walk before taking in a spring training game down the road at joker marchant stadium. Not a whole lot to see but it was a pleasant stroll.

We are photographers. While we have a studio with lighting and backdrops, many clients prefer a natural outdoor setting and Hollis Garden offers superb natural settings. We have done many shoots there and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a spot offering beautiful natural outdoor backdrops.

What a delightful place! The gardens are well designed and maintained, a real treat for the senses. A little surprise around every turn--a bird, a fragrance, a sculpture... And the music! Perfect!

Easy to find though less than ample parking and there's a child play zone right on opposite side of... More

The Gardens border Mirror Lake. While not a large botanic garden, it is beautiful and very tastefully arranged. It is very well maintained. One garden area utilizes colorful vegetable plants. There are very few signs that name the plants and that would be an excellent addition

Great variety of southern plants, beautifully laid out with a lake overlook. Rarely busy and a great place to relax and enjoy a few hours.

Well manicured public gardens with wonderful lake vistas. The path around the lake creates a number of opportunities for gatherings an exercise. There are no picnicking areas [Bummer]. Great place for a wedding and photography.
