Love this place. A formal garden, sculpture, a children's play area, a restaurant with delicious food, tropical trees, fountains, and a huge lake. They even had beautiful music in the garden. There is probably more I just haven't discovered it. This was our second time here and I still thoroughly enjoyed it. This place has something for everyone, from babies... More

In the center of Lakeland there is a large park which sounds Lake Mirror. There are many components of the park, but perhaps the most beautiful is Hollis Garden. Even though some of the flower beds were awaiting the spring planting, the gardens were expertly manicured. Color came from gerbera daisies, dianthus pinks, snapdragons, and pursalane. The box gardens defined... More

Best Garden in the Area. Bright Colors and Smells of the Flowers. It is right next to Lake Mirror. A restaurant is right next door.

Beautiful million dollar garden with grotto, interesting background of trees, many flowers and plants with lots of paved walkways around the Garden and surrounding area and lake. Many weddings are held here as well as photo ops for proms and other special occasions!!

Nice to stroll through these gardens with many opportunities to take great family pictures. Adjacent playgrounds for children makes for a kid pleasing experience. Occasional trains also give the kids something to look forward to.

Our visit was shortly after Christmas break, so very little activity in the area. However, we were quite impressed that this venue is well-maintained & still has nice plantings in the off season. The feeling of tranquility makes the visit worthwhile any time.

Love visiting here, so beautiful to enjoy. We've taken family pictures there and also attended a wedding there. Just beautiful. Just know sometimes they close parts of it for private events like weddings.

Hollis Gardens is a beautiful place to visit if you're a flower/nature lover. The beautiful fountain with it's calm stream-like sound is an added plus, along with the calming, soft music. It's full of beautiful flowers and bushes. The Gardens overlook Lake Mirror and is the location for a lot of weddings. It's the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate... More
