These include the state’s largest public display of bamboos and the largest herb garden in the Southeast.  June through September prove to be the most colorful in the Gardens.

Kanapaha offers guided tours of the Gardens every first Friday of the month. Tours begin at 10:00 am.  You may also enjoy a picnic in the Gardens.  Bring your picnic basket and find a perfect spot in one of the lawns, picnic tables, or gazebos.  Drinks and snacks may be purchased in the Summer House.  Want to bring Fido?  Dogs are welcome on a leash most of the year except during special events.

The Gardens is also a great location for events such as weddings, receptions, and retreats as they offer indoor and outdoor spaces for rent.

Kanapaha hosts many special events throughout the year including a Bamboo Sale and North Central Florida’s premier horticultural event, the Spring Garden Festival.
