Home to several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Harry P. Leu Gardens also lays claim to almost 20.3 hectares (50 acres) of warm-weather gardens. You can visit the gardens and wander among the lush greenery, discovering azaleas, citrus trees, hibiscus, vegetables, and more spread out over a multitude of different exhibits and themed areas. Keep an eye out for some of the centuries-old oak trees on the grounds. Stop by the on-site museum in the former house of the garden's founders, the Leus, and join a guided tour. You'll find a showcase of the life and times of the Leus dating from around the turn of the 20th century. Be sure to check the gardens' schedule for information on special events, showings, and activities. Plan to visit Harry P.

What an AMAZING place to visit. Such beautiful, trees, plants and flowers to see in a very large grounds. Has also got an historic old home to tour. So much to see here that it would take more than a day. Different things are in bloom year round. They hold a lot of events here like movies nights. It's a must see for relaxation and being one with the Earth and all its Glory
