    Pretty Little Garden

    Some really pretty plants to see, especially the bonsai garden, My Golden Retriever wanted to get into the fountains! The children’s garden is very cute, especially the fairy garden. The herb garden was under construction and the plants for sale looked to be in bad shape. We went on a Saturday morning and almost had the garden to ourselves. I hope more people discover this pretty little treasure and support them with the money needed for maintenance and additional plants!

    Small, but lovely arboretum

    Lovely paved and unpaved paths wind through different areas of the garden. Beautiful Bonsai collection. This is the only botanical garden in this area of Florida I could find that allows dogs, so a real treat.

    I went with my dog on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of lawn and pathways through beautiful local plantings. Dogs must be leashed but there was a lot for them to smell and it was a great walk. Admission was eight dollars and well worth spending A couple of hours viewing.

    Leashed dogs allowed

    Very pretty place and worth the admission. Dogs must be on leashes, and you must pick up after them. They have waterbowls out for them.
