Best combination gardens and rehab sanctuary. Locals love it and visit again and again... so if just visiting try this if you appreciate nature history and taking care of animals humans have inadvertently harmed. You need to go.

On a recent visit to the Miami area we visited Flamingo Gardens in Davie. Our group was 4 adults and a 3 year old. The tram tour was very interesting to the 50 beautiful acres. The walking paths were lovely, surrounded by native trees and plants. The birds, also mostly native were free roaming on the paths. Most of the... More

A friend n I visited with our 2 five year olds. The boys really enjoyed it. There were so many peacocks n they weren't afraid of us either. We were also surprised of how many animals were there too. We saw Florida panthers, Sea otters, Black bear, alligators, flamingos n turtles, owls. Nice place to visit on a day that's... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Flamingo Gardens---the Ray House, Wildlife Exhibition, turtle pond, flamingo area, peacocks---it was well-done with the exception of the tram driver. The tram ride itself was beautiful. The information given by the tram driver, Mitch, was riddled with speculation and inaccurate facts. At one point, we stopped and looked at a... More

We are sorry that this driver upset your day. As you know, because I personally responded to your letter to my office, the tram driver has already been reprimanded and will no longer give his personal opinions during his working hours. We hope that you will not allow that one employee cloud your perceptions of our park and our mission.... More

Found the price of admission a bit on the pricey side for a rather small park but had some nice exhibits. Also took a tram ride with some good educational info plus an animal show which was ok. If the price was cheaper it would be more worth it to go through this park but zoos provide more bang for... More

Great gardens but aging and deteriorating. Good day out for the family. Very nice tropical foliage and animals.

What a neat place this was. I took my parents to Flamingo Gardens for a fun day. They have some nice walking areas to view different types of plants, flowers and champion trees. There is a birds of prey exhibit with some different types of hawks, owls and two bald eagles. You can see them up close. One of my... More

it was a great place to visit. the trees were absolutely beautiful. My husband and I laughed at the animal presentation because the first animal the brought out to show was an opossum. We are from Indiana and was hoping for something more exotic but thats ok.

Thank you for visiting and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time here. I am sorry that you did not find the Wildlife Encounter animals exotic enough, but because we are an Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary, we do not have exotic animals in the presentation, only Florida natives. We hope that you enjoyed it anyway! We hope to see... More
