Established in 1961, Harry P. Leu Gardens offers visitors a nature’s escape with 50-acre gardens replete with winding pathways through over 40 different plant collections, including a butterfly garden and Florida's largest rose garden. Inside these vast gardens, there is a Leu House Museum, which preserves the history of the families who once lived here. The gardens and historical home were donated to the City of Orlando in 1961 by Mr. Harry P. Leu and his wife, Mary Jane. You can explore the gardens on your own but it is a good idea to take up a guided tour to the museum to understand its historicity.
