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.

Nice urban retreat!

More than the plants we enjoyed the nice walk in the urban park, free entrance, small lake inside, wifi available, benches, silence, nice to stop for an hour of pure relax.

Actually a pretty little place. And free. You can buy plants and flowers in their shop. Parking is difficult but not as bad as in some other areas.

I was disappointed in this botanical gardens. Perhaps February was not a good time to go. Should be amazing with the plants in Florida. It was right by the convention centre, so also a bit confusing if you are walking to know which way back to Lincoln street. There was no cafe. good washrooms though. Right next to the Holocaust...

The garden is free and convenient to the holocaust memorial and the Miami beach convention center. However, the garden is very small and there is not much to see. The entire facility can be toured in fifteen minutes at the most. If you are visiting the memorial it is worth a visit but don't be prepared to see very much... More

This is a lovely botanical garden, tucked away behind the Miami Convention Center. Though not nearly as big as Fairchild Gardens, a large number of tropical plants are beautifully displayed. The garden also runs numerous special events, including yoga classes in the garden. Check their website for upcoming events.

I expected a lot more from wealthy, tropical Miami Beach. I truly love this city, but the Miami Beach Botanical Garden needs attention. They don't have much in the way of exhibits, no themes, many planting areas that are quite rough around the edges. It's a small space, so I would expect more fine detail. The Sunken Gardens in St....

very interesting variety of foliage beautifully displayed with Dale Chihuly glass installations interspersed throughout. Butterfly 'house' with many interesting butterflies- experienced guides to show the butterflies

True that this garden is small so they must work with the space they were given so many years ago but in all fairness it is well taken care by people who take pride in what they do. I'm sure many of the people who have expressed negative comments about the Miami Beach Botanical Garden either had set their expectations... More

Thank you so much, Mr. Rodriguez, for your excellent review of our Garden - and I think you hit the nail on the head! We strive to do the very best that we possibly can with the 2.6 acres we were allotted decades ago by the City of Miami Beach (which, by the way, is a very small barrier island... More

A nice respite in a busy town. The botanical garden is at the end of busy Collins Ave and a nice change from all the activity. There are a number of nice fountains and benches for relaxing and viewing. The plantings in January were low key as expected but still enjoyable. The setting is a big venue for weddings and... More
