    It's been struggling for years. :( This is one of those places where I really think the state should step in and take over if only for the historical factors involved.

    It's a pretty park, truly a "gardens" park, and that is what so few people are interested in anymore. No real thrill rides, although there was a midway of sorts.

    I remember being a kid and watching water skiing exhibitions and competitions on television brought to you from "BEAUTIFUL CYYYYYYYPRES GARDENS FLORIDA!"

    Sad day indeed.

    Awww that's so sad. I loved my visit there when it was just gardens and a waterski show and a few extra bits. Lovely way to wind down for a day. :(
