Owner description: 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.

Beauty at the highest! Every kind of tropical plant and flower you could imagine! The scents are amazing and the foliage superb! Wonderful time looking at everything there!

These gardens are located in the middle of Miami Beach and offer visitors a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area. Marty gave my fifth grade students a tour of the gardens and made it so fun and interesting. He managed to keep all 43 students engaged the entire time (even while discussing plants)!

Don't expect a big botanical garden, it is more an intimate garden. However the garden is really nice and several rooms are available to rent for receptions

Landscape was beautifully maintained but quite small. I expected it to be a lot larger. There were stray cats roaming around, and I'm extremely terrified of them! Didn't want to stay long because staff was setting up for some event taking place.

Thankfully when the golf course in Miami Beach moved the city was able to obtain the land. Part of it was used to great a lovely botanical garden. It is well laid out and features beautiful tropical plants surrounding an open green and a pool. This is not a big garden but just the perfect size for a guilt break... More

I visited the MBBG last weekend with fellow APLD landscape designers. We were in town to experience gardens designed by Raymond Jungles. While small in comparison to other botanic gardens, the space has been effectively and efficiently re-oriented to give the illusion of a larger garden. The plantings are lush, the water features are soothing and the garden is a... More

A small yet lovely oasis in that's a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Miami Beach. The garden surrounds a central water feature and is a great destination for any plant lover.

If you have the opportunity to visit the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, take it! I was there for the Ghosts in the Garden Halloween Ball and had an amazing time. For $75 we were wined and dined with yummy foods (Latin Burger food truck) and candies from Dylan's and Buzz Bars. The spirits were generously poured and the music was... More

Thank you so much, Kandi, for taking the time to tell everyone about about two spectacular social events at the Garden this year. Our recent Ghosts in the Garden Halloween Bash was spectacular, and the Garden never looked to so good with its magical lighting, live music, good food and drink and the wonderful costumes that made their appearances. It... More

This small space in Miami Beach is open to the public free of charge. Donations are accepted. There is a audio tour with about twenty stops. You can call a phone number to hear it or use the internet on your smartphone.

Thanks for taking the time to do a review and it sounds as if you enjoyed our lovely, but we are a little dismayed to only get an average (3-star) review. We are indeed a small Garden - just the 2.6 acres that the City of Miami Beach gave to us more than 50 years ago. But we strive to... More
