The City of Lakeland does a fine job in keeping this area clean and green, Many venues use this park for weedings, parties, Car shows, and other various outings. Nice 2-3 hour history stroll.

A great place to spend some quiet time enjoying the beauty of the garden. Well groomed and maintained. Take a walk around the lake or lunch at the bistro. Numerous places nearby to get something to eat.

I have been to gardens all over the world and this is world class even if it is small. A great wedding venue in spring and fall. The big objection is staff has kept up with tagging plants

Hollister Gardens is a peaceful hidden gem in Lakeland. It is in a great location with beautiful Lake Mirror on one end, a great child's park next door, nearby restaurant, Pavilion, etc. A must see when in the downtown area.

The gardens are small and you can view them in under 30 minutes but take the time and stroll around the walking path of the lake. There are some great picture taking backgrounds in this area.
