One of the nicest areas to visit in Orlando is Harry P. Leu Gardens, just north of downtown. But did you know this gem is turning 50 this year?
Well, it is and to celebrate, Mayor Buddy Dyer and city commissioners will hold a tree planting and dedication on Monday, November 7, at 10am.
Free tree seedlings will be handed out after the ceremony by the staff, who will also be on hand to answer your gardening questions.
Best of all, the event is free for all to attend. Normally admission is $7 for adults and $2 for children 17 and under.
If you’ve never been here, the gardens are a wonderful place to spend the day, or at least a long afternoon. It’s laid out over 50 acres and features paved scenic walkways that take you past the largest formal rose garden in Florida, a 2-acre tropical stream garden, a butterfly garden and more.
Harry P. Leu Gardens are located at 1920 North Forest Avenue. Hours are 9am-5pm daily except they are closed Christmas Day.
