We had visited Leu Gardens in the July heat a couple years ago, so we went back for a cooler visit and to tour the house with the Christmas decorations. It was more pleasant to stroll the gardens in cooler weather but not much is blooming in November. The house was nicely decorated, each room by a different entity. The... More

I am really impressed. I wish we would have had more time to spend wandering the grounds enjoying the flora from around the world. On our next trip I would definitely like to come back here to see what I have missed. The layout is really a series of gardens with central themes. There are 4 or 5 smaller areas... More

The Harry P. Leu Gardens was an enjoyable place to visit. The grounds and gardens are very well-maintained. Due to the climate of the area, there was still much to see. The grounds are fairly level, the paths are paved, and ramps are available where needed. Benches are also located in convenient locations, many of the shaded. In addition to... More

I have been here so many times but going during the holidays is a particularly wonderful time as the Leu House is decorated by a variety of artists with many trees, table settings and the like. Since it's Florida the fauna is still lush and we even got a few blooms of some of plants that soon will demonstrate why... More

The rose gardens, camellias and butterfly gardens are outstanding. However there are interesting plants around every corner. A must see in Orlando downtown.

These gardens are gorgeous. There are paved walking paths that take you through thick foliaged areas (plenty of shade) as well as to a water overlook--can see down town from here. There is also a small stream that runs under the path at some points. They also have a very nice gift shop and a historic home that you can... More

Leu Gardens is a real Orlando treasure. I am especially fond of it since it is where I got married almost 10 Years ago. It is best when the camilla bushes are in bloom in January or February but I love this place 12months of the year. Leu Gardens offers quiet walks through tree lined walkways, it offers a rose...

I grew up in the Melbourne area and hadn't back in Orlando for over 30 years. We wanted a non-Disney, old Orlando experience and discovered the gardens. WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE! We love gardens and were amazed at how large and beautiful the gardens are. The variety of trees and plants is amazing. Who knew!!! Loved it.

The garden covers a large area and has several different themes. You can also tour the house, but we missed the tour by a few minutes and did not want to wait. It is well worth a visit.
