Owner description: 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.

This is a relaxing corner of Miami Beach. It is a small botanical garden with a pond in the center. It has many plants of different species and a label that shows the name. When we arrived there, they were preparing a ceremony. We stayed around 20 minutes. It is small but very relaxing. Behind it there is a canal... More

Nice place, to escape to for some peace and quiet. Also used as educational place for children and students.

Wonderful oasis worth seeking out . . . although, try to avoid the Noon hours as you will find challenges in capturing all these beautiful plants and scenes with your camera. The garden rooms create many different styles and moods, all of them lovely . . . but caution . . . you may crash a wedding if you get... More

I have passed by the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for years in the evening when it was closed, but finally today for the first time I was able to visit. There are beautiful plants from around the world, as well as fish ponds, and garden sculptures. It is a nice place just to sit down, relax, and enjoy the peaceful... More

I think the gardens were lovely, but the rooms available for rent are quite dated (the online pictures of the Butterfly Room must have been taken quite a while ago). The lighting at night in the gardens is dangerously low and there is zero signage making it difficult for people trying to navigate to one of the rooms. They are... More

It's a small and quite nice botanical garden, but nothing special of extraordinary to be honest. Nevertheless worth a visit, to escape the busy city life. Especially in combination with visiting the Holocaust Monument.

This was our most disappointing visit. I knew the garden was only 2 1/2 acres, but thought it would be very tropical, lush and beautiful. It lacked inspiration...and looked like nothing was in season. So maybe December is not a good time to visit. Maybe the garden lacks funds to have flowers planted in the winter months?

Marty M, Vice President at Miami Beach Botanical Garden, responded to this review

Oh, Peg, we are so very disappointed that you didn't see any of the beauty in our Garden, even though it is, as you speculate, very much the off season here even for sub-tropical specimens. The majority of our visitors always find at least one element in the Garden to truly appreciate - either the Japanese Garden or our lovely... More

Entrance is free and being next to the Holocaust Memorial, you can make a day out of it and visit both places, for free. Amazing and Beautiful!
