Time Out Says

Open daily from 9am to 5pm, the Harry P. Leu Gardens are a welcome calm among the storm of Orlando’s more high-octane sights and sounds. A botanical paradise just minutes from downtown, they were founded in the 1930s by local industrialist Mr. Leu, who would travel the world, bringing rare plants and seeds back for his blossoming project. The tropical and semi-tropical gardens unfold across a rolling 50 acres of landscaped grounds and streams, with meandering trails shaded by 200-year-old oaks and forests of camellias. Don’t miss the stunning Tropical Stream Garden and the Leu House Museum, and after you’re done exploring, enjoy a picnic lunch on the patio of the Garden House.
