Pack up your camera gear for a photo excursion to one of Florida’s most photographed sites! At the Gardens we allow photography anywhere on the grounds for personal, non-commercial use. Our beautiful vistas, landscape gardens and architecture are the perfect subjects to photograph, and we encourage you to share your photo finds with us on our Facebook page or by email.

Some of our favorite iconic photo spots include: the Exedra overlook at sunset, the Reflection Pool, and Window by the Pond.

These items are not permitted in Bok Tower Gardens property: Glitter, confetti, balloons and drones.
