The McKee Botanical Garden is a forested area along the Indian River lagoon. Created in 1929, the gardens leisurely sprawl across around 80 acres of land. Owned by the McKee-Sexton Land Company, the gardens thrive because of the natural richness of the land and soil around the lagoon. Designed by William Lyman Phillips, landscape architect, the gardens, listed as one on the National Register of Historic Places, are a meandering layout of lakes, ponds, plush plants, pathways and streams. Known for the collection of water lilies and orchids, the collection was gathered from the world over by the duo, Arthur G. McKee and Waldo E. Sexton. The beautiful gardens are a perfect setting for weddings and other private events, and quite a popular one at that. The gardens also entertain events for children like summer camp, so do check the site for more information.
