We stopped by for a walk in the garden and stumbled into a Camellia show. The garden is about 47 acres and has a few walking trails, a pavilion, a lake and an amphitheater. There is also a camellia garden and a a wildflower garden....More

Not a single flower in bloom! No signs. Trails not marked. Everything overgrown. Boardwalk falling apart. We left when we saw the sign warning of poisonous snakes in area.

No maps. No signs.Paths not clear. Hence we found very little of interest and we did not stay long. Hardly a botanic garden.

It was nice for 1/2 hour stroll on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but I had expected it to be a little bigger from looking at the maps. The boardwalk is lovely and peaceful.

A hidden gem, I almost do not want to write a review--it's the best kept secret in Winter Park! Grounds are well maintained and still the gardens represent a natural habitat. I like that the lawn isn't well-manicured which loans to its forestland-feel. Plenty of...More

I think you can. There's a pretty trellis with pretty flowers around it. It's on the left side after you enter. Also has a little courtyard with some statues that would be nice:)
