About Mead Botanical Garden

Is Mead Botanical Garden Dog Friendly?

Yes, absolutely, Mead Botanical Garden is a dog friendly park and makes our curated list of the best dog friendly places in Orlando. An ideal stop for nature lovers, at Mead Botanical Garden dogs on leash are welcome throughout the park (but not within marked garden beds, of course). Located north of downtown Orlando in Winter Park, Mead Botanical Garden is open from 8:00 am until sunset, and admission is free.

Mead Botanical Garden is a scenic, 48-acre park featuring comfortable paved walking paths and rustic earthen trails that wind past lush gardens and ponds. Because the park is home to many migrating birds (and is part of the Florida Birding Trail), your fur baby absolutely must remain on leash. Amenities include free parking, a visitors pavilion, picnic tables, restrooms, a Discovery Barn, and, as you might guess, plenty of lush gardens and flora habitats. Insiders’ tips: The entrance to Mead Botanical Garden is easy to miss. Keep an eye out for the small signs and keep in mind that the park’s entrance is at the intersection of Garden Drive and Denning Drive. The park is also deceptively spacious. Be sure to pick up a map so you don’t miss any of the attractions, including the winding dog friendly trails in the north half of the park.  Located in the Winter Park area, Mead Botanical Garden is an easy drive from many of our favorite pet friendly hotels in Orlando.
