Celebrate National Public Gardens Day at Leu Gardens

Come celebrate National Public Gardens Day with Leu Gardens, located at 1920 North Forest Avenue, Orlando.

Public gardens are a special place that maintain plants for the purpose of education and enjoyment and what better way to enjoy this day than to explore and learn about the Gardens with the talented Horticulture Team.

A series of 30-minute “Conversations in Bloom” with the Gardens’ Horticulture team have been planned throughout the day. You can choose which you would like to attend or stay the day for all them, included with garden admission.

Leu Gardens hope you will learn something new about the Gardens and inspire you in your own garden.
