It is a beautiful stroll

I love this place you can walk through it by the college there, and you can also take your pro pictures here too for weddings and other fine events.

beautiful garden with lots of benches to sit and reflect. I enjoyed the water features and the accessible pathways. Loved the Shaded pathway, If you are visiting with young children, you may want to keep a close eye on them, pathways are uneven my 5 year old tripped on a crack on the concrete path and the bridges have rails...

What a beautiful place to visit - lots of variety of native plants and a quiet place to walk alongside the stream.

I have been to this garden many times, each time better than the last. This is an amazing garden. It is well tended with concrete walkways. Although it is not large you never feel crowded. As admission is free, this is an excellent value. I take every opportunity I can to visit there. Please note this should only be visited... More

A better outdoor activity is winter months, quite humid and hot during summer months. Well kept and groomed. A retreat for stressed students and out door studying.

I've driven by this place for years now and never knew it was here. I was looking for things to do while family was in town found out about it. I am not disappointed that I went. Situated on the Florida Tech campus just off Babcock St, this is a beautiful green space with many unique species. Take some time,... More

Nice walk, well manicured. However there are no facilities near depending on the time of your visit. Ours was around 4. Not a day excursion-but a peaceful end to our busy day.

Welcome shade, strolling paths, streambeds, labeled plants, a perfect lunch place. Exhibits near entrance when we went. A bit of quiet among the bustle of campus and city traffic. Being a garden fan, such a delight.

First visit here and worth the break from the beach!! Beautiful tropical foliage surrounding a path with identification markers and a pond full of a variety of turtle species. Very peaceful walk with the sound of a waterfall included. Only downfall was the amount of garbage and debris thrown from footbridges. Other than that a must see for nature lover's!!
