Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens
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.
There are many benches and picnic tables to allow one to sit, rest, have lunch, or just take it all in Trees and topography of the quarry allow temperate and semitropical plants for flourish year round. Birds of prey, owls, doves and numerous songbirds, butterflies, turtles and Big Ben our 100 lb. blue catfish may also be encountered. 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.
