Wilmot Botanical Gardens is free and open to the public year-round. We encourage patients, caregivers and family members to visit the gardens as a place of respite while receiving care from any of the surrounding UF Health facilities. History buffs might enjoy visiting the gardens’ historical marker and learning about the gardens’ place in American horticultural history, and lovers of nature and/or gardening will enjoy the extensive plant life, including over 250 varieties of camellias. Learn more about the individual gardens.

Tours can be scheduled by appointment for anyone interested. Request your tour today!

On occasion, the conference center might be booked for a meeting or the greenhouse might be closed for a private therapeutic horticulture session. Greenhouse open hours will be posted each semester. However, the gardens are always open to visitors, even when the facilities are otherwise occupied.
