Fragrance Garden


The Fragrance Garden is part of Lakes Park, a 277 acre park in South Fort Meyers, Florida, where you can touch and smell the scents of native exotic plants and walk a fruit and spice path. It was started in 1991, with a small collection of herbs.  It has grown quite a bit, and now has a huge assortment of trees and flowers.




The park is open from 9:00 AM to dusk.  There is a parking fee for motorized vehicles:  $1.00 an hour or $5.00 all day.

  2. sounds nice. Unfortunately I do not have a good nose. It would be interesting to take a sniff test there.

  3. I used to visit a local rose garden to smell the roses, it was a sensual pleasure. I also like the smell of some herbs: rosemary, basil, lavender, and studied their uses as well. I have had herb gardens, so everyone in family knows how to use them in cooking. Those flowers look like what is called Angel Trumpets here (maybe of Italian origin, they like warmth).
    I'd likely love this garden. The French use herbs very well, hence I like knowing about them.

    1. I love smelling the different flowers. I probably leave with a yellow nose, though. ;0)
