Come visit over 50 separate gardens and numerous waterfalls and koi ponds that were born in a 100 year old retired lime rock quarry. It has become a sanctuary home and refuge to many of God's creatures great and small. Remember to ask to tour the aviary with pheasants, quail, a goose and leopard tortoise! The quarry walls are lined with concrete and rock planters filled with hundreds of species of plant and flowers to create a unique paradise. Rock by Rock, each rolled in by wheelbarrows and strategically placed by human hands. Trees and topography of the quarry allow temperate and semitropical plants to flourish year round. Birds of prey, owls, doves, numerous songbirds, butterflies, turtles, frogs, and other wildlife may be encountered along the trail.
Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens is also home to domesticated animal friends including many cats, a couple dogs, a pair of swan, several ducks and pheasants, a goose, a squirrel, two Galah cockatoos, numerous Koi fish, and a 100 lb blue catfish named Big Ben. There are many benches and picnic tables throughout the trails to allow visitors to sit and enjoy the spectacular views. You may also wander though our surrounding woods and enjoy the Oaks, Cedars, Pines, Pecans, Hickories and Dogwoods in an adjacent 54 acre nature conservation easement maintained by the Conservation Trust of Florida. Take advantage of our discounted group and educational rates and enjoy Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens with a group of friends or family members on Thursdays.
