Eureka Springs Pavilion - rose garden cut back
On Jan. 13, 2019 we will do a major cut back of the rose garden. It usually takes six to eight weeks for the roses to regrow and bloom after that. The rose garden will be out of commission from January 13 through March 31, 2019. Keep this in mind if you are renting the pavilion and want to have the roses on display for the event.
The Eureka Springs Conservation Park was first established in 1938 by botanist and traveler Albert Greensburg as a botanical garden of rare and unusual tropical plants. He also created the first Florida tropical fish farm springs that were near his botanical gardens. In 1967, Greensburg donated his prized site to Hillsborough County, making Eureka Springs Park the only botanical garden in the park system.
Lovers of horticulture will savor the 31-acre natural beauty, especially the largest publicly owned collection of ferns in Florida. Nature connoisseurs can gaze at the park’s rose garden and orchid room, as well as stroll along walking trails and the boardwalks that wind through a lush floodplain forest of maples, cypresses, and tupelo.
The park also features a greenhouse, picnic tables and shelters, a reservable Eureka Springs party pavilion, and interpretive trails.
