Most people know us as an attraction with beautiful flowers and singing Tower. What you may not know is that we also have unique programs for plant conservation. We have several opportunities throughout the year to help and participate in saving rare plants.

If you could wonder the Gardens with one person, past or present, who would it be?

Serene gardens known for their "singing" tower, whose carillon bells are played several times a day.- Google
"It's a great place for a peaceful walk and the children's area is great!"
"Look around or eat first, either way, the food and drinks are soo delicious."

A must see place to visit! Went when weather was in the 70s. Couldn't imagine going in the summer. Could be sweltering hot! Gardens are beautiful! Children would love it. The music of the carillon bells is calming and soothing. Be prepared to walk

Gorgeous, peaceful, exotically lush, with unique history. Tower is a spectacular musical monument with the rich sound of giant carillon chimes which play every 30 minutes. Lovely walking trails, a panoramic Florida setting with nice facilities, gift shop and restrooms. The museum section instills a deep appreciation for all the history attached to this heaven on earth.

This is one of the best things to do in all of Florida. The grounds are impeccably maintained. The mansion was very interesting as the staff was very knowledgeable. From a children's play area to the tower itself, you can easily spend the whole afternoon here. Bring a picnic lunch or buy a sandwich at the restaurant. If you're anywhere near Bok Gardens and haven't been then absolutely make the effort or you will miss a truly worth while experience.

Bok Tower Garden has a way of transporting you into another time and place. The green grass envelops you as you walk up the slightly steep incline through lush gardens to grand tower itself. Every hour an organist plays live through the tower and out into the hillside serenading the entire area. It's hauntingly beautiful. Please take the time to learn and read the history of this landmark. Lay in the lawn and feel the energy here. The CAFE is a DO NOT MISS. The chef makes incredibly tasty and fresh food and it's a fair price. They carry craft beers, some local and ORGANIC. The shop sells fresh local honey and plants to start your own home oasis. If the incline sounds a little difficult for you to manage don't fret! There are adult sized 3 wheel chairs to assist and baby carriages to BORROW for at no additional charge. The park also hosts special events throughout the year including camping on ground, stargazing, and garden activities. I have visited as a child and as an adult and each time I appreciate the magic even more.

A true gem. The gardens are lovely, and focused around local flora. The Singing Tower is simply stunning, both architecturally and in terms of the gorgeous sound of the carillon. The cafe and gift shop were surprisingly good. And it's all very inexpensive compared to other botanical gardens I've visit. I would definitely recommend visiting.

This place is incredible! We had such a great time. It's a great place for a peaceful walk and the children's area is great! We ate at the cafe there and the food was really good. I highly recommend this place. We enjoyed it here so much that we bought a membership so we can come back all the time.

Excellent botanical gardens. Guided tour was very nice. Christmas's designer tour of the house was excellent. Great food at the museum gift and snack shop. Tour guide said 2 - 3 hours, we were on site for 5 hours.

Relaxing outing for an unusual look at the hilly side of Florida. Day trip for a local. Eat before you go though as their little diner is a bit overpriced which is typical for these kind of tourist places. Plus not anything special regarding their food choices anyway. The small estate home was not open when I went but not really impressive anyway but it was charming and interesting to see how the owner Mr Bok lived. Ringling estate is much more interesting. But if you do go to Bok make sure ahead of time that the estate home is open.
