Nature / Outdoors, Picnic

Mead Botanical Garden — Free Nature Walk in Orlando / Winter Park

It’s free, it’s wild feeling, it’s got a nice abandoned vibe — what’s not to love?

Mead Gardens boardwalk is usually empty and a beautiful place for an evening run. It feels like you’re away from the city and exploring nature. You run over little creeks and around the brush. Jog along a little creek and through the woods and wild flowers. Running the jogging trail only takes about 20 minutes, but if you do it twice, it’s quite a bit of a run.

Stay for lunch and eat on the picnic tables or just enjoy some peace and quiet. Personally, I love it right before a thunderstorm; watching the sky get dark there has a beautiful, ethereal vibe.
