“A quiet, beautiful garden.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This wonderful garden over looks Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland. It has a wide range of plants and flowers. It is well landscaped and carefully cared for. It is just nice to walk around and revel in the scenery and the plants and flowers. It is a great gift from the Hollis Family to the city of Lakeland.

“Must See”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

While in Lakeland you have to go to Hollis Garden. It is beautiful and very relaxing atmosphere. Just walk around and enjoy the flowers and scenery. My In-Laws were married here. Don't miss out.

“Good, but small”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

If you're walking round Lake Mirror, don't miss Hollis Garden -- but don't make a special journey to find it. There are very nice plants and flowers, some decent statuary, and pleasant music. What there isn't is much of anything. Think of this as a pleasant formal garden, rather than a botanical treat, and you won't be disappointed. It is sad that closing time seems to be well before sundown, I think this would be a more special test in the early evening.

“A little disapointed”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Was a little disappointed this time. With it being May I expected to see more blooms in the garden. Still pretty but not as lush as in October. It is free to the public. So I hope they are getting the funding they need.

“Had my wedding here.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Very nice and the staff was very helpful in making sure the wedding went off with out a hitch. The Garden was great for pictures after the event. If there is no events going on, it is nice to just walk around the garden and see the beauty.
