Legoland Florida Reopens Iconic Areas of Cypress Gardens

Filed under: Florida News,Legoland Florida |

Earlier today Legoland Florida held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the reopening of two of the most iconic sections of Cypress Gardens, the Florida Pool and the Oriental Gardens.

Great care has been taken to restore and preserve these historical areas of the gardens that are now nestled in the center of Legoland Florida’s 50 rides, shows, attractions and more than 58 million LEGO bricks. We got chance to take a look at the work that has been taking place to restore the Florida Pool from “Easy to Love,” a 1953 film starring Esther Williams and the Oriental Gardens.

The Florida shaped pool and the Oriental Gardens have been cut off to the public since the park opened in 2011 but the plan was always to reopen them to the public.

“Legoland will always have Cypress Gardens at the heart of Legoland Florida and it makes it different and it makes it special” said Legoland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “What better than the iconic Florida Pool, which is probably the most iconic shot of Cypress Gardens with its history.”

The original Cypress Gardens was one of Florida’s earliest tourist attractions. Dick Pope Sn. began staging water ski shows on Lake Eloise in the 1930’s and created a botanical area intersected by canals and filled with flowering plants surrounding a banyan tree. As a result Cypress Gardens gained national prominence and many TV shows and movies were filmed at the attraction from the 1940’s through to the 1960’s.

The botanical area is now under consideration for a listing on the National Register of Historic Places and the park now plans to bring more Lego displays inside the gardens to complement the setting. The gardens already have Lego sculptures of Cypress Gardens Southern Belles and the idea is to make the gardens more accessible to all family members who wish to visit.
