Actually visited in January during the Paws in the Park event. Gardens is always a nice quiet place to come to and relax. Wish they would have more days during the year that they would allow pets.

Really beautiful, peaceful and a wonderful day spent with nature! I'll be packing a picnic next time, yup there's gonna be a next time! Although the cafe smelled amazing and is reasonably priced so might have to try that too!! I loved it, as did my mom and friend!

What a beautiful place. We had such a great day. The decorations at Pinewood Estate were wonderful and the jazz band was a nice surprise. And as always the carillon concert did not disappoint.

This is such a beautiful place. The Christmas decorated historic house was fabulous. I wish I lived closer because it has a lot to offer.

This place is absolutely beautiful!!! If you love nature you will not be disappointed. There are trails & benches everywhere. If you have children, there is an area designed just for them to explore. There is a visitor center, gift shop, & cafe on site upon arriving. Signs are everywhere & they have maps you can take. You won’t get lost while walking around. The bell tower is incredible.

This was the first time my husband and I visited this extraordinary place of wonder, history and beauty. We cannot wait to return. Mr. Edward Bok had a philanthropic spirit and a kindness that lives on in this place of wonder filled with beautiful flowers, bushes and trees. The wildlife abounds surrounding unparalleled architecture with carillon music guiding your path.

From Our Editors

Bok Tower Gardens, a National Historic Landmark, has enthralled visitors since 1929. When founder Edward W. Bok visited the area near Lake Wales, Florida, during winter retreats, he became enchanted with the beauty and vistas from Iron Mountain. From the hilltop, 298 feet above sea level, Bok marveled at serene sunsets and was inspired to preserve the area for future generations. Famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. was brought in to create a 50-acre garden, which has ferns, palms, oaks, and pines fashioning a lush backdrop with flowering foliage. At the center of the garden, the Singing Tower, designed by Milton B. Medary, features 60 carillon bells ranging in weight from 16 pounds to 12 tons, which play daily. Also at the heart of the garden is Pinewood Estate—a Mediterranean-style mansion built in the early 1930s by Charles Austin Buck, a Bethlehem Steel vice president. The estate is open to self-guided tours and decorated during the holiday season. Visitors can look forward to special events hosted at Bok Tower Gardens throughout the year, with refreshments available at the Blue Palmetto Café and souvenirs at the gift shop.
