Maclay State Gardens

Maclay State Gardens

Alfred Maclay visited his brother who lived in Tallahassee and immediately fell in love with the area. The Gardens were started in 1923 and donated to the state in 1953. The gardens are a part of a state park and are connected to hiking trails and recreation areas. Maclay Gardens are some of the oldest in the state. Some cammelias in the garden are over 100 years old.

The gardens were designed to bloom in the winter and early spring, this differs from other gardens which typically shine in the summer and late spring. Some of the outstanding features of Maclay State Gardens include the collection of Oriental Magnolias which stand 40 to 60 feet tall. When these trees bloom the ground is covered with the fallen flowers.

Other features include the Camellia Walk, Walled Garden, Secret Garden, Pond Walk, Azalea Hillside and the restored Maclay Winter Home.
