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

My wife and I are seriously into photography, and we enjoy visiting botanical gardens to take pictures of the flowers and landscapes. Therefore, we included Miami Beach Botanical Garden in the itinerary of our 7 day Miami Beach vacation. The garden is free of charge, and while that’s nice, you get what you pay for. There were very few photo... More

Thanks so much to our visitors from Essex for the praise of out little Garden! We, in fact, describe the Garden in exactly the same way as you do - a tranquil, beautifully landscaped spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach. Come see for yourself! Open every day but Monday from 9 am to 5... More

"Miami Beach Botanical" is beautiful, relaxing, and educational. Being free is beautiful, so are lectures on seed planting. Or lectures on cooking with roots. Or yoga, or tai chi in the garden. I always enjoy the visit.

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.

Quiet spot near south beach. Its across from a school though, so there were a few kids in there being loud and riding their bikes. That was obnoxious. Its free to be in the garden. There is a cute place to take photos. Spent about 30 minutes there to see all the plants. Theres a thorny tree, watch out tree... More

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
