|Facility:||Ladew Topiary Gardens|
|Description:||Ladew Topiary Gardens is known around the world for its topiary and flower gardens. Created by Harvey S. Ladew (1887-1976), a self-taught gardener, the Gardens feature 15 thematic "garden rooms" on 22 acres. The Garden Club of America has described Ladew as "the most outstanding topiary garden in America."
The Nature Walk is a 1.5 mile trail through the woods and fields of the Ladew property. In addition to educational stations along the trail, there is a short boardwalk through wetland forest and marsh. Tours are self-guided, aided by a printed map and descriptions of each station.
The Ladew Manor House is also open for guided tours. An impressive collection of antique English furniture graces the rooms of this equestrian-inspired country house.
They offer activities throughout the year that are really enjoyable and kid friendly, so check their website's events calendar to plan your visit. You might be able to see a topiary sculpture and go home with a balloon "sculpture" on the same day!
