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

We came to see Flamingo Gardens during our trip to Fort Lauderdale as the weather was too bad for a beach day. I gotta say that my expectations were not very high, but this place is really worth a trip! We found a little oasis far off the usual shopping/drinking/eating spree we encountered elsewhere. True, it is not a big... More

Thank you for choosing Flamingo Gardens as your choice for a non-beach day outing. We thank you for recognizing the work we do and the time and money it takes to care for all the injured and non-releasable animals. We hope you will visit again if you are in the area. More

Most of the birds and at least one opossum are rescue animals that need to be cared for. This is a non-profit and the admission fee helps support the park. Beautiful birds. Especially the barn owls. Some spectacular trees. This is a very enjoyable few hours. Don't miss the wildlife show.

I recently visited this park and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a non profit organization. I took the tram ride around the park and the driver Carol was very informative. They care for injured animals and have a walk in aviary full of different birds. There is also a bear, panther, alligators and turtles as well as the gorgeous flamingos.... More

Educational & entertaining for all ages. It includes walking trails, a narrated tram ride, wildlife show, Panther, Alligator & Otter exhibits, feeding the gorgeous peacocks, flamingoes & other birds, a historical house & beautiful tropical gardens. Florida citrus drinks & snacks are also available. It's like going back in time to Old South Florida.

It was a fun place to see some gardens and some animals such as an alligator and the Florida panther but it's not very big.

This is much better than the beach. I last visited almost three years ago and could not wait to return. We went with relatives who live in the area and once again were impressed with the mission of the place, the beautiful plants, birds and animals. They have new additions: a black bear and a Florida panther (who joined the... More
