One week after Hurricane Ian ripped through Orlando, Harry P. Leu Gardens (Website) has finally reopened to the public.

The gardens, which are owned and operated by the City of Orlando, reopened at 9 a.m. Monday, October 10 after being forced to temporarily close parts of the grounds due to debris left by the storm. The recent Move Night and private wedding rentals were able to continue as planned, despite the damage to the rest of the gardens.

According to a press release issued by the City of Orlando, roughly 43 trees of various sizes were lost during the storm, along with smaller plants, though none of the buildings sustained any structural damage.
