This was a fun afternoon trip! Take the tram ride. It was very informative and interesting! We saw iguanas, all kinds of birds and plants. Really fun! They have a bear, gator, a small show that the kids liked as well. Bring your camera!

They have a wide variety of plants and birds. So many unique things. The white peacocks, the bald eagles, all the other birds of prey. Otters and alligators. My new favorite tree is the walking fig. There is also a Zen garden store, they are great for that unique plant.

We are so happy that you had such a good time on your visit. The white peacocks are a sight to behold when they are in their mating plumage. Thank you for writing a four star review on TripAdvisor and hope to see you again real soon. More

Really enjoyed our day at the gardens! Snuck this into our first time Florida trip & I'm glad we did. Assumed it was all about flamingos & it was way more than that! (didn't research the grounds before we went) Areas where the birds & animals are living, are clean & not overgrown with foliage. Just a very enjoyable experience.

We were so happy to have done some internet digging and find Flamingo Gardens! We were pleasantly surprised by the "2-4 Tuesdays" they offer throughout the summer (discounts also available for college students and military with ID if I recall correctly). No matter full or half price, we were surprised by the knowledge of the staff, the amount and diversity... More

We live in the area and decided to try Flamingo Gardens. It's a bit run down and certainly not on par with the price of admission compared to other local attractions. With that said, the smaller size was great for my two kids to be able to explore with a little more freedom. There are very few concessions so eat... More

We were looking for something to do on the day we were driving from Fort Lauderdale over to Tampa. We came across info for Flamingo Gardens here on TripAdvisor.

This is great place to visit but a bit pricey on the entry fee. We were able to go for less as my daughter had a free admission. Animals are nice to see and the different plants were interesting. History of the place is also interesting. If you are really wanting to see animals I would recommend the zoo, better... More

Thank you for visiting and for your your 4 star review. . Because we are not a zoo, but a wildlife sanctuary, all our animals are injured or non-releasable and are given a home for the duration of their life. We do not go out an seek animals for a specific exhibit. That is the reason we do not have... More

This place has always been a family favorite of ours and is a great place to spend a couple of hours and get some fresh air and exercise. The new bear exhibit is awesome and Im happy to see where my donation has gone. This place has taught my daughters a lot about conservation and rescue of animals. Keep up... More

Spent the morning (2.5 hours), great work done here rehabilitating injured native FL wildlife. Large park, well maintained, very informative tram ride. Bird aviary, native plants. Peacocks walking everywhere happy to pose for your photos. Nice break from the heat.

Flamingo Gardens is a hidden gem located in Broward. Whereas it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles of Zoo Miami or all of the other nature attractions in Miami-Dade, it offers a cozy experience. My favorite part was the peacocks roaming around. They are literally just walking around in stride with you. Very majestic! They have a nice... More
