Outside the Ballroom: Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens

As a venue for events this site is far from ordinary; Albin Polasek, a retired sculptor, opened his foundation and his gallery to the public and it has remained a standing monument to the sculptor.

The Polasek is a liv­ing museum, containing out­door gar­dens dat­ing to 1949. The garden boasts three-acres within the city of Win­ter Park. It also boasts a historic landscape on Lake Oceola.

The museum’s gar­dens are a delight­ful retreat any time of the year with their labeled trees and shrubs, beau­ti­ful flow­ers and sweep­ing lawns. Dur­ing each season the gardens are filled with seasonal flowers and plants, making this spot ideal for a venue for any type of event.

Thank you for the feedback, although right under "Things you might like" is a Facebook button, as well as a few other ways to share this. I may consider moving it up a little though.
