I took my grandsons here and they absolutely loved it. The splash and play park for the kids is great and they ran around in their shorts for a couple of hours never getting tired of running in and out of the water! They also loved the petting zoo (remember to take anti-bacterial to clean all your hands afterwards) especially... More

Fortunately, its only $5 to get in. The potential for this place to be a great show case of plants is very high. However either it is being run badly or they are lacking fund. We saw littering, and lots of small projects that appeared to have been started but not finished. There was no place to buy food for... More

I have visited this location since I was little and Parrot Jungle was still located there. For those of you who don't know: Parrot Jungle was a Zoological facility with hundreds of birds from around the world. A little over 10 years ago the owner decided to relocate the park to an Island near Miami Beach. Developers wanted to flatten... More

My wife and I are photography enthusiasts, so we took a day out of our Miami Beach vacation to visit Pinecrest Gardens and the nearby Fairchild Botanical Gardens for picture taking. I was not expecting much from Pinecrest based on a few bad Tripadvisor reviews, but wow, we were surprised! This is a very nice and relatively large botanical garden... More

Beautiful gardens in the Pinecrest area. Very pleasant experience. Nature info, plants for adoption, free healthy snacks were given away the day my husband and I visited the gardens.

The flora and funa is beautiful and the architecture is great. The wildlife includes several koi, pacu pacu and even a tarpon! The playground is great for kids and there is a petting zoo. Highly recomended.

I do not know if this was the wrong time or it was that Pinecrest Gardens has become land that is fenced with some foliage. I was not impressed at all. The foliage was dry and the trees seemed that they needed costly trimming There was a smell of stagnated water. Not a nice experience. But what I was able... More

This property, the former location of Parrot Jungle, was acquired several years ago by the Village of Pinecrest, and is now operated as a park and botanical garden. The grounds have been lushly planted with beautiful tropical plants and flowers, and have been refurbished with a water playground for kids (excellent), art gallery, a petting zoo, outdoor dining spots, and...
