Cypress Gardens

A four level pyramid containing 12 skiers was the finale to the last water ski show at Cypress Gardens Sunday afternoon. The skiers circled the bay once holding an American Flag on top to the tune of Neil Diamond's "America." Cypress Gardens closes its doors after 67 years. It is known for its botanical gardens and water ski show. These are scenes from its last day open. April 13, 2003. JESSICA MANN, ORLANDO SENTINEL
