    Henry P. Leu Gardens

    Looking for a sedate escape from the theme parks? Not far from downtown Orlando, the Henry P. Leu Gardens offers a serene and scenic departure from the typical Orlando vacation. here. Part of Leu Gardens also hugs a section of Lake Rowena, and there is a nice, shady deck next to the main house that provides for a great picnic spot. Leu Gardens normally has an admission charge (I believe it was $7 per adult); however, on Mondays from 9 a.m. to noon admission is FREE! The gardens are also available for wedding ceremonies.

    Leu Gardens is a botanical garden near downtown Orlando. It is not very large, you can probably walk through it in an hour or so. People tell me they have nice Azaleas and roses, but what do I know about plants....
    My parents like this place and go there everytime they visit. Sometimes they have events that draw enough people to take up all of the parking in the entire area, like plant sales, or concerts.

    There are $6 guided tours of his house, built in 1888

    Admission is free Mondays from 9am to noon.
