Outdoor Wedding/Event Heaven! – I had my dream wedding here, after a long hunt of places to have the event! I searched hotels, beach resorts and other outdoor venues and this place was just perfect for my budget and for my family and guests (200). My catering staff was professional, and due to the Gardens staff, so many little issues became NOTHING of concern!
Highly recommeneded for a wedding or event!
Get married in beautiful Leu Gardens, then hold your reception at the grand Garden House. – Setting the stage
Garden House overlooks Lake Rowena and offers three lovely reception rooms. The Rose Room can host 25 guests; the Orchid Room, 45, and the Camellia Room with its screened veranda can hold 180 people.
The City of Orlando is the Gardens' landlord and has some rules: use only their approved caterers and obtain insurance through Leu Gardens for your event. Inquire about the cancellation and refund policies.
For four-hour blocks, the Rose and Orchid rooms cost $300 and the Camellia Room rents for $600. Additional time can be booked on an hourly basis. All rentals require a 50 percent deposit and the balance is due 30 days before the event.
A good place to spend an afternoon... – My wife and I have been to Leu Gardens a couple times, and we always enjoy it, even though were not gardening nuts.
The garden is very peaceful, and there're many places to sit and enjoy beautiful views. Every time we visit, there's something new to maintain our interest.
If you go, don't miss the tour of the Leu House (every 1/2 hour.) The best time to go is in Jan-Feb when the Camellias are blooming.
I you want to have lunch nearby, try the Panera Bread at Fashion Square Mall, or Athenian Garden Cafe on Orange Avenue.
Free attractions – It is definitely worth the admission fee, but I thought this was a rating of FREE attractions. Leu Gardens charges an admission fee which should be pointed out.
Nice relaxing atmosphere – This is a nice place to relax and do a small picnic. You will find beautiful exotic plants. If you like that sort of thing you have to experience at least once. I don't care to go again, didn't think it was worth the money.
breath taking – I loved the gardens!!! They were amazing! I walked around all afternoon- they were so peaceful. It was nice to get away from the crowds of Disney World and relax.
