Hubby and I have visited twice since being in Lakeland. We like to walk around the lake and the Hollis Gardens. The flowers, plants and fountains are beautiful. I would highly recommend a visit.

I have been to Hollis Gardens twice. Once in April and once in October. In April the flowers were much more vibrant! Beautiful both times. Grounds are well maintained. Relaxing. Peaceful.
