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.

These gardens are worth the stroll (just across the street from the Miami Beach Convention Center and near the City Hall). Nicely laid paths and clearly labeled trees and plants. The shade and calm are welcome, too, on an otherwise hot and crowded day. The only negative note is that on both our visits (in 2015 and 2016) they have... More

Thank you for your review; we at the Garden like to refer to our 2.6 acres as the oasis in between the glitz and glam of South Beach. Point very well taken about the tents: here's the back story. We are supported by the City of Miami Beach for basic services, but all the wonderful foliage that you saw &... More

Wonderfully displayed lush garden, an oasis in the otherwise automobile congested South Beach. Unfortunately a "little" out of the way, but worth the time to get there. Be aware of hours as gates are locked when closed.

We totally agree with your review of the Miami Beach Botanical garden; in fact, we call it our secret oasis in the middle of the glitz and glam of South Beach. It's a wonderful place to escape to, to but a sandwich on Lincoln Road (just 2 blocks away, not so far) and bring a book and just sit back... More

We enjoyed our stroll through this garden. It's just small enough to walk through in less than an area - very peaceful area and easy to access - near Lincoln Rd.

I love finding gardens dropped into a city! The guided tour with your cell phone was confusing to follow but the information was great to hear. Looks perfect for a wedding or party. And I learned that helium is a non renewable substance.

The gardens are right next door to the Holocaust Memorial, two minute walk around the corner. It was lovely to walk through and rest on a bench there on a warm morning. The scale is small but nicely done and I especially liked the giant baobab tree in one corner of the gardens.

Visited in the winter so missed the full effect but it looked like it had good bones with lovely plants and 1920's buildings. A cool oasis in the middle of hectic South Beach.

This is an extremely delightful spot to spend an hour or so to learn and see the variety of tropical plant life that exists in southern Florida. Close to the Convention Center, this tiny garden space is full of lush and gorgeous plants and trees. All tastefully displayed and impeccably maintained. A wonderful, quiet space to slow the pace of... More

The Botanical Garden is a great oasis of calm in a noisy and hectic city. There is a wide variety of beautiful trees, bushes and plants, including orchids growing on palm trees. There is a Japanese Garden, which is particularly tranquil. It is free to visit the Garden and there is a walking tour available. Recommended.

This is a great stopping point to fill water bottles, buy a cold soft drink ($1.75) or use the well-kept restrooms. There is plenty of shade and seating areas to take a break from the sun. There are 100s of koi in the large pond.

We went to the gardens because we saw it in our guidebook. We arrive to find a green paradise, surround by malls and car parks. The garden is nice, but rather small, which was a disappointment.
