Nature Coast Botanical Gardens

Best little secret in Spring Hill

Beautiful Iris are growing throughout the gardens.

Nestled just before the curve on Parker Street you are greeted by a huge monkey tree guarding the entrance. It’s a hidden gem in Spring Hill that not many people know about.

Welcome to the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens. Encompassed within the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens are three lush acres with pretty much every tree, plant and flower you can think of that flourishes here in Florida.

A Trip to the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens

Prior to my recent visit I had never heard of the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens, and most local people I asked hadn’t either. So I must admit I wasn’t expecting a lot when I headed out on my journey to visit the Gardens. With my 5 year old in tow we drove the short distance from my house with the mindset that we’d be there no more than 20 or 30 minutes at the most. I am happy to report that was not the case, in fact we spent over an hour and easily could have spent longer there.
