The Singing Tower, a 205 foot ornately crafted neo-Gothic and Art Deco tower, was designed by the famous architect Milton B. Medary and stone sculptor Lee Lawrie.

Clappers

The carillon is a set of 60 stationary cast bronze bells, precisely hung in the tower and played with a keyboard. 

The clappers hit the bells as the player depresses the keys with closed hands and feet.  The Singing Tower at Bok Tower Gardens is one of the world’s finest carillons.

Plan to spend a day there, enjoying the beautiful gardens, exhibit hall, and the gift and plant shop.

Photographers in the family will find The Gardens s a dream location for landscape as well as portraiture photography along with many other activities the whole family can enjoy.

Take a little time out to relax and enjoy a snack, or casual meal, either inside or out, at the Blue Palmetto Cafe.

 The cafe offers a delicious selection of salads, soups, sandwiches, and specialty desserts and kids menu as well as beer and wine.

Check out the Bok Tower Gardens website to plan a trip to honor all those veterans who have fought to preserve our freedom.
