Discover 50 acres of lavish botanical gardens just minutes from Downtown Orlando. Harry P. Leu Gardens has been a part of the city of Orlando since 1961 when Leu and his wife, Mary Jane, donated the garden and historical home. Over half a century later, the gardens continue to thrive and welcome visitors to take in the natural beauty of the botanical oasis.
Stroll through the 14 vibrant gardens just by Lake Rowena and come across different types of butterflies, vegetables, and flowers. You may even run into what is known as the “dinosaur garden” where many on-site plants date back to the prehistoric age. Gaze up at the palms and bamboo that surround you in this magical part of the acreage.
Take part in one of the many special events held at Leu Gardens, like Movie Nights and Nature of the Game where adults and children can partake in an exciting hands-on game experience. Visiting at the beginning of the month? Take advantage of Leu Gardens free days each first Monday of the month. Bring the entire family for a day of relaxation without the cost.
Harry P. Leu Gardens is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with admission at $5 for children ages 4 to 17 and adults at $10 per person. Daytime Garden Admission Tickets are good for one-time use on any day the gardens are open.
