I was recently on a Caribbean cruise and of the three nature areas I went to, including the turtle farm on Grand Cayman, I liked this one the best. This was part of the last thing I did. It was disembarkation day and the day before I flew home to LA. First we went and did an airboat tour around... More

The decor is lush and tropical, lots of big trees, palms. Doing some renovations, but the bathroom, food court, shop, attractions, are all very good. The 19th Garden Festival & Bonsai show, presented good lectures and demonstrations.

Flamingo Gardens is a bit out of the way from most other South Florida attractions but is very well laid out and extremely well maintained. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant. This is a good experience for young and old.

The old huge trees are truly treasures. There is no maintenance happening that is obvious. It is a non-profit org and needs some serious help.

Thank you for visiting. Our Champion trees are one of the things that do make us special. Because we receive no government funding, it takes awhile a little longer to do the things we would love to do. We rely on admissions, memberships and donations for our operating budget. We hope you will visit again in the future to see... More

Went to the flamingo gardens today and purchased the additional tram ride ticket. It cost 4 bucks but is well worth it. You get an overview of the park and a lot of information about all the trees and plant life there. Very interesting. After the tram ride we toured the exhibits and the aviary was really wonderful.

This is a great place to visit if you live in Broward County. We go for the special events at night every year, such as Halloween and Christmas. We're there the first Friday night of every month for the food truck party when they usually have a DJ and a country acoustic band. Very nice to stroll when the orchids... More

Although I haven't been there in a while, I really enjoy every visit to Flamingo Gardens. I love the tropical vegitation, the petting zoo, the train/cam ride, and the gift shop. Another place I find very interesting is the Florida history building. I love looking at the pictures of what Florida used to look like a hundred years ago.
