Enjoy the best of the

River District!

In Gardner's Park, we know that our area is constantly evolving. It's not enough to stay with current trends, you need to anticipate them. That's we make it a point to offer visitors a variety of shops and restaurants in Florida. You'll find shopping that runs the gambit from antique and jewelry stores to upscale gift shops. As far as dining, you can grab the region's freshest food one night and treat yourself to a High Tea served with seasonal, locally-grown, organic food the next. Whatever you choose to do , there's too much of it to fit into one outing so come back again and again!

Variety is the spice of shopping!
