WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - Legoland Florida says it will reopen two areas of the Cypress Gardens botanical section that have been closed to the public since the park opened in 2011.
    
The Lakeland Ledger reports that the Polk County-based theme park announced Friday that one of the restored features is the Florida Pool, a peninsula-shaped reservoir built as a set for the 1953 Esther Williams movie "Easy To Love." The pool had suffered from years of deterioration before Legoland Florida acquired the property in 2010.
    
The other section that will be made open to the public is The Oriental Gardens.
    
The 30-acre botanical area is under consideration for a listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
