This is a good garden to visit if you should happen to be on the east central coast of Florida or you want to visit a great garden that doesn't have the notoriety that others in the state receive.  There are a lot of mature specimens of Cocos nucifera, Roystonea regia, Ficus aurea, and various water lilies.  The video tour is roughly 10 minutes long to view all four parts and the previous threads from 15+ years ago have some additional photos of palms of interest, including the pre-1989 Roystonea regia.

I think the large Roystonea on the left is the pre-1989 Roystonea regia:
