Beautiful Garden with innovative landscaping and sculptures in the midst of Morton Lake. The Garden is not a very big one but a quiet refreshing walk. There is also a lovely eating place where the food is delicious. We enjoyed it very much.

Very peaceful and charming small garden, located in lake mirror in downtown Lakeland. Took a morning walk and stumbled upon the foliage and sculptures. Worth a pleasant walk through.

Great garden but wedding going on so couldn't see all of it. What we saw we really liked. Lots of shade available made it a nice spot to relax after walk around scenic mirror lake.

The gardens are small and you can view them in under 30 minutes but take the time and stroll around the walking path of the lake. There are some great picture taking backgrounds in this area.
