This is a lovely spot to leisurely stroll through the various gardens. Very reasonably priced and well worth the money. Paths wind around the property; lots of shaded areas. Beautiful spot for a wedding. They currently have a dinosaur exhibit, so it was fun to come around a turn and spot a prehistoric creature! Rose garden was nice, as was... More

This is a great place to see a variety of flowers, plants, and right now dinosaurs, right in Orlando. The rose garden and butterfly gardens were amazing. Unfortunately the museum portion was closed but we will be back again to check it out another day.

A manageable size botanical gardens - more "natural" in style. There are some more manicured areas - like the lovely rose garden, always in bloom. Love the path to Lake Rowena - hope they can get the trash that unfortunately has been thrown in the water removed. We loved the temporary exhibit of Dinosaur sculptures - it's a nice way... More

We can't believe this gem lies in the Orlando area! The gardens were lovely and we especially liked the Rose and Butterfly Gardens. The only reason I didn't give it five stars, was because the mansion was closed for renovations the whole week. We love historical homes, so we were very disappointed! Too bad they couldn't have put that notice... More

I enjoy gardens and you will not be dissappointed with this one. Large variety throughout the property and very educational if you are into such a thing. Bonus was the current dinosaur display. Cool.

This is a lovely garden to walk around in for a couple of hours; we especially liked the rose and butterfly gardens but all the garden areas are nice. It was also fun to see the special dinosaur exhibit. We liked how they worked the dinosaurs into the gardens so they really blended in with the surroundings. We also enjoyed... More

Near the traffic but so separate, and today even visited by dinosaurs! Leu Gardens has something for everyone; lakeside vista, prehistoric plants, a lovely jungle walk, rose garden, butterfly garden, idea garden, and more. Stress is far away as you choose where you wander. Walks are paved, benches scattered throughout, plenty of shade.. The entry mansion is ready for events,... More

This is such a beautiful garden. We were so happy that we took a couple hours and walked through. The flowers, bushes, and especially the trees were magnificent. It is well worth the visit if you are a nature lover. All the Live Oaks are a delight to see.

Enjoyed the grounds. If you like gardens this is a nice time for locals. Not a tourist attraction but rather a lazy Sunday.

They have now paved most of the walk ways so it is easier to view all the plants, pots, trees, butterfly house, etc. Prices are amazingly reasonable. And they have every thing you could want for a garden project.
