Animals and birds that are injured come here for treatment and retraining. Many can't return to the wild because they would not survive, but surprisingly many are able to breed and their offspring can have a full life. Yes, a few of the exhibits are scruffy--the place needs donors--but the dedicated staff works hard to keep this place going. We've... More

Dear Carmen, Thank you for visiting and for recognizing the hard work that our staff does everyday. We are totally dependant on admissions, memberships and donations to keep our doors open and to care for all these injured and non-releasable animals. Thank you also, for taking the time to write such a good review on TripAdvisor and hope to see... More

If you are interested in Florida history this is a place to see. You can find out about the rise of some of Florida, mostly about the fruit crops. The bird sanctuary is nice as you can see lots of different birds and learn about what brought them to the park.

I booked a vacation for after thanksgiving and searched around Fort Lauderdale for attractions and activities. My wife has never seen a flamingo before and figured it has got to be some what of a respectable establishment since it is ranked 85% good by tripadvisors. well I am definitely not one of them. This place was horrible, first we walked... More

I am sorry that your visit was not up to your expectations. I want to apologize for the actions of that employee and state that the department was disciplined and it will not happen again. As for the stagnant water. We use only well water in our exhibits and it is not treated with any chemicals making it safer for... More

This was a good way to spend a couple hours in Florida. Be sure to take the Tram ride through the gardens to learn about the different trees and plants. That was my favorite part of the visit to Flamingo Gardens. We also enjoyed walking around looking at the animals. There are many birds to be seen as well as... More

If you enjoy seeing a little bit of old Florida, then this might be the place for you to come. A favorite to local schools and tourists, you can stop I got a few hours and enjoy a tropical paradise, while seeing plants and animals well known to South Florida.

We are sorry that you were disappointed in your visit and did not see the areas of the gardens that we have in photos of the park. Every picture that we post is definitely taken here. Not every tropical plant flowers at the same time and most do not flower in the fall. You must have a beautiful backyard if... More

we visited this "zoo" with no great expectations. It is really good with lots of animals to see in delightful settings. Don't miss the tractor tour which is both interesting and fun.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit. We also love that you put the word "zoo" in parenthesis, since you realized that we are not a zoo, but a wildlife sanctuary. Thank you for visiting and for writing such a nice review. More

Although this is called "Flamingo Gardens" the flamingos are just a very small part of this complex. It is really like a mini zoo, set on about 100 acres although much of the acreage can only be seen via the tram. We took the tram ride and it was very nice, narrated by a very knowledgeable fellow that provided a... More
