Florida Botanical Gardens Reviews & Ratings
5 stars all the way!! This was the best treasure we found our entire vacation!!! It is a free botanical garden with a large area to wander around, plants were well labeled. It took a good 2.5 hours to wander through all the areas...and that didn't include the the Heritage Village as it was closed that day. This is a exotic plant lovers paradise!!!
Gorgeous! Over thirty (30) gardens in total, classrooms and educational center. Picnic area as well, wheelchair accessible. What a spectacular place for an evening wedding or any event. Great place to bring kids for education. Excellent photography options here. Make sure you use SUNSCREEN before heading here, and if prone to bug bites use a little before coming (wouldn't hurt). Bring drinking and our your favorite non alcoholic beverage to stay hydrated! Definitely heading back during different seasons for the outstanding blooms!
What a lovely garden to visit! My family, including my parents, visited after Googling things to do near us. This little gem popped up. It is very well maintained with a lot of varieties of flora. We had a ton of fun looking at the tropical fruit trees. Some varieties I had never of or seen the fruit they produce. This is a free walk through. It closed at 5:00 so we weren't able to see it all having arrived at 4:00. One in our party needed to use the facilities but all buildings were locked at 4:30. So we had to leave to accommodate the need. But we all agreed the gardens are definitely worthy of another future visit.
The garden has a lot of potential! With a little funding this could be made into a beautiful gem of Largo. Nonetheless, it’s a nice garden with lots to see. Plenty of benches throughout to stop and relax and enjoy the view. There’s a tropical garden, herb garden, fruit garden and many more!
This is a place my husband and I go to often. It's ever-changing and always peaceful. Beautifully maintained. We bring picnic lunches and take long walks. The variety of trees and and plants is incredible. You'll always see things blooming and fruiting. You can cross the footbridge to Heritage Village and walk there, too. It's like going back in time. (In fact my husband and I married in the old church there, on Valentine's Day, 2015 ♡♡)
