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

We spent about 90 minutes in the gardens though you could probably walk through in 20. We were in no rush and enjoyed relaxing on the many concrete and metal benches placed throughout the gardens. We especially enjoyed the easy chairs on the great lawn and the bench in the shade by the koi pond. They have a small gift... More

Your detailed description of your visit to the Garden, Peter, is spot on. Many thanks for doing a fine review and helping TripAdvisor readers to know what to expect when they visit us. We are a small Garden, so a visitor can zip through in 20 minutes, but we recommend taking your time (and taking lots of photos!) and visiting... More

The botanical gardens are a lovely place to visit. The atmosphere is very peaceful. I had the opportunity to attend a meditation class during my visit, which was wonderful. Saw lots of interesting foliage. Two different butterflies posed to greet me and be photographed. I took lots of pictures. Worth a visit.

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

"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.
