We are a small Garden, just 2.6 acres, with a very big mission! We call ourselves an urban oasis in the middle of the glitz and neon of South Beach, a place where locals and visitors can come and enjoy the numerous cultural and artisitic programs that the Garden has to offer. Created as a Miami Beach city park in 1962, the Garden was rejuvenated in the fall of 2011 with a $1.2 Million landscape renovation by acclaimed South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles.We invite you to discover the new features of the Garden – a wetland with red mangrove and pond apple trees, an expansive water garden with cascading oolite fountain, a welcoming entrance plaza, and diverse collection of flowering trees, palms, cycads, orchids, bromeliads and Florida native species.

Amazing Place.

If you love nature and warm weather you don't want to miss this, the surrounding it's amazing right off the beach.

Compared to Fairchild, I would not call this a botanical garden but it's free so worth passing through if you are in the neighborhood. Not much to see, in april I did not see orchids, only lotuses in the pond.

We are glad we stopped here. Well kept gardens, children playing in the sand, birds, butterflies, and a yard sale were all on-site during our visit. Had some good photo ops too. And once you pay for parking here, it's just a short walk around the corner to the grand Holocaust Memorial...something that you shouldn't miss if you are in... More

While this garden is small the plantings and identification of them are really well done. They were setting up for a private party while we were there and it looked like they were doing a fantastic job.

We visited the garden three years ago and were very impressed. Visited again in March 2015 and the gardens were even better. We were lucky to visit whilst the Dinosaur exhibition was in place. The gardens have expanded and each specialist garden is extensive and lush. A new restaurant has been constructed. If you visit Naples you must visit these... More

It's a nice garden and it's worth a visit since it's near South Beach. there was some landscaping and renovating when I went so it wasn't exactly like the pictures, but it is very nice to sit in the shade. There's also a bar that sells refreshments.

They have a nice collection of palms. Wish it was bigger, but its free, so that's a plus. Guess you have to go out to Coral Gables to that famous garden with the steep entry fee.

We wish we were bigger, too! But land on this small barrier island is at a great premium and the 2.6 acres that we have been allotted through the years by the City of Miami Beach is all we will ever have! But we are a free botanical garden, and you are totally right that the large garden in Coral... More

Its very small but very peaceful. Be sure to take along your own picnic as there aren't any opportunities for refreshments. About a 20 min walk from the Beach.

Very small botanical garden, however, being off the beaten tracks, there was only 1 other visitor when I went. It is very small so don't plan to visit it all afternoon, however, it is a great little park to chll, read a book or take the sun. It is free which is nice.
