This is a small garden with great diversity and a lovely layout. Take your time and enjoy the variety and vibe. Afterward, take a walk around Lake Mirror and grab a bite at the nearby Garden Bistro. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Certainly worth seeing on your next visit to Lakeland. Also explore the rest of Mirror Lake. You won't regret stopping here!

Hollis Gardens is simply delightful! Great place for a nice quiet walk around and enjoy the outdoors, great for family pictures and breath taking for weddings. My kids love the Koi pond that is there. It's a short walk from a beautiful lake and great park for the kids.

The Gardens are closed Mondays for maintenance. Staff will share cuttings if you ask. Water features and sculptures are a nice touch. Small but well maintained and a nice variety of plantings.

This is a beautiful garden sanctuary surrounding a lake with roses that bloom all year long. View the garden, walk the lake and see the swans and ducks. The Bistro nearby has great salads, sandwiches and soup in a pretty location.

This is a must-see in Lakeland that my high school resident friend showed me and my husband on quick visit to the city. Beautifully landscaped with perfect picture backgrounds everywhere and lake views with an on site cafe. Very nice.

The gardeners are friendly and ready to answer questions. The gardens are beautiful. It is great to have the children's play area and the Peggy Brown building and the Bistro nearby.

This is a lovely garden. Small and uncrowded (and free), it's right along Lake Mirror, and includes beautiful flowers, pretty fountains and even quieter little corners you have to seek out. A nice place to seek out and relax if you are visiting Lakeland.
