Sugar Mill Gardens is a botanical garden developed and maintained by the Botanical Gardens of Volusia Inc., a nonprofit organization with no salaried employees. It features a 19th-century sugar factory; part of the former Dunlawton Plantation.

The property was donated in 1963 to the County of Volusia by J. Saxton Lloyd and operated since April 1988 by the non-profit Botanical Gardens of Volusia Inc.

The gardens provide an inexpensive, wholesome family environment where you can stroll through trails, view the sugar mill and statues of dinosaurs from an early theme park, watch butterflies, and learn more about flora and fauna native to Florida.

Please read and follow the rules posted at the entrance gate and on the Gardens website.
