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

Lovely to see the Botanical Gardens. Very peaceful but make sure you take your insect repellent! Beautiful trees and plants and very picturesque. No charge for admission.

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.

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 . . .

My wife and I wanted to see the Botanical Garden and had planned this visit during our stay here at SoBe. When we showed up at 1150 AM June 10th we were met with locked gates and signs saying that the garden was closed for a private event from 1250. Reckoning an hour would be enough to see the garden,...

The Miami Beach Botanical Garden apologizes profusely to our Danish visitors for the difficulty they had earlier this week in trying to visit our beautiful little Garden. We sincerely apologize. The vast majority of our private events are held when the Garden is closed (typically, these are evening weddings and receptions held after our 5 pm closing time). But there... More

Rented the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens for a private dinner in the Banyan room. The setting was perfect, especially with the addition of the new awnings over the patio. The tropical outdoor setting with an indoor option provides a unique experience with private access to the gardens after public hours.

We are just thrilled that our lovely Banyan Room worked out so well for your private dinner, and many thanks for taking the time to sing the praises of the Botanical Garden as a spectacular venue for private events - from large weddings, to intimate dinners - and everything in between. You are spot on in singing the praises of... More

We are very disappointed in your review - we know we are small but we do the absolute best that we can with the 2.6 acres that the City of Miami Beach allocated to us a half century ago. What were you really expecting? A mammoth garden on a tiny barrier island where, admittedly, parking is a major problem everywhere... More
