Harry P. Leu Gardens

What a beautiful oasis, just a few minutes north of Downtown Orlando Harry P. Leu Gardens is! We had our first visit to these gardens last week and it certainly won't be our last. It is a beautiful place that combines formal, landscaped gardens, a cottage garden with vegetables, a rose garden a butterfly garden and more. There is a large lake too with a viewing platform from which we enjoyed watching various birds, large fish and turtles. It is a very peaceful place  to walk round and hard to believe it is only minutes from the busy I4 motorway. You could easily spend two to three hours here but we combined a visit here with heading 5 minutes or so down the road to Winter Park, another must see place.
