Harry P. Leu Gardens

These gardens feature three miles of paved scenic walkways that take you through 50 acres of southern-styled gardens, including: America’s largest Camellia collection outside of California, the largest formal rose garden in Florida, a house museum dating back to the 1880’s, and a Butterfly Garden. A fun and educational tour of the gardens incorporates scientific concepts about plant and insect life. Your group can also schedule time for a guided tour of the Leu House Museum, allowing them to learn about the lives of four families that owned the property. Some tour options include a pre- and post-visit activities guide.
