Throughout our 85 year history it has been very clear that a visit to Bok Tower Gardens means something different to everyone. It’s personal and uniquely yours, but it also makes a huge impact on who we are. Your story is our story.
Stories about your first date make us a place where romance flourishes, stories about exploring the Gardens with your parents make us a place where families grow closer together, and stories about doing photography make this a place that continually inspires those who walk our meandering garden paths. Visitors enter our gates and throughout their visit they find themselves making memories that last a lifetime.
Without these personal experiences and memories, this place wouldn’t be quite as special as it is today. We want to hear what this place means to you so we’ve created an opportunity for you to share your stories and photos through a brand new online project at www.boklegacy.org. This is just one more way we can help preserve Edward Bok’s legacy for future generations.
On February 1, 2014, come back to find your published story and read about the experiences and fond memories of other visitors. Be part of this incredible community by sharing your story today!
As a private, non-profit attraction we are unaffected by the government shutdown and Bok Tower Gardens remains open daily from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and is supported by tax-exempt gifts, generous contributions and admission revenue. All revenue and Membership support continues Edward W. Bok’s dream of helping to preserve and sustain this gift of beauty for future generations.
We have been designated a National Historic Landmark, but this title does not correlate with our operations as an independent organization which is separately operated from the United States federal government.
Please continue to Plan Your Visit to Bok Tower Gardens and enjoy your visit!
We’ve planned another squirrely year as we celebrate the start of the fall gardening season during our annual Boktoberfest Plant Sale on October 19. Visitors from around Central Florida flock to the Gardens for this one-day event and it wouldn’t be possible to host it without our dedicated corp of volunteers and staff.
Throughout the day we have a variety of volunteer opportunities available including helping to answer guest questions, serving beer, selling plants at our booth, and even working with kids in our activity area.
“It is for us to so write our lives that we shall leave behind us in the hearts of our children the most precious heritage we can leave to them: our faith that “a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.”
