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. « less

I had never been to a botanical garden before, but had always wanted to visit one. This place was beautiful and so peaceful. Definitely a good place to relax and clear your mind along with enjoying all of nature's beauty.

It's stay behind the Holocaust Memorial; or in front of the Miami Convention Center. It's open from 9-5pm, try to go there on the early morning. It's never too crowded, and you can take awesome pictures there.

This very manicured, handkerchief sized park is a lovely retreat in Miami Beach. Lack of research prevents it from being a botanical garden. For visitors at the Convention Center, it's a nearby little outside spot.

We at the Garden would have hoped for a better review, Annette, from someone who spent so much time there, let alone in the office. Yes, we are well-manicured. Yes, we are only handkerchief-sized, the 2.6 acres we have is the land allotted to us many years ago by the city of Miami Beach and we have nowhere to expand,... More

The park has many great areas. Places to sit and relax in the shade. Close to the convention center and Lincoln road. The fountains are filled with algae and junk and need to be cleaned much more often.

The park is very small. Would not recommend visiting unless you are in the area and have 20 mins to kill before a show at the convention centre.

Marty M, Vice President at Miami Beach Botanical Garden, responded to this review

Ouch! Such a churlish review! We KNOW we are small - we advertise our mere 2.6 acre size everywhere we can, to set expectations appropriately. This was the space allotted to us by the City of Miami Beach a half century ago, and we are stuck with it. But most reviewers, and local residents, agree that we do a tremendous... More

This is a small botanical garden in the middle of Miami Beach. It is an oasis not to be overlook. It is best to go early morning or late afternoon, especially in the summer when it may be too hot for some people. They have several varieties of palms, a small collection of bromeliads and other plants that attract butterflies.... More

Great location to take a break, meet friends or bring your kids and grand kids. Attend the monthly Miami Beach Garden Club meetings during the season. Enjoy the different events such as the Wednesday Farmers Market, The Taste of the Beach . . .
