My husband and I love strolling through the garden whenever we are in the palm beach area . Also check out their calendar for special events such as concerts and art exhibits. It certainly lives up to its name!

I'd say this garden is a lovely place to wander for about 30 minutes if you're in the area. Pretty Asian section, beautiful grounds, quiet.

To get away from the noise and traffic, we enjoyed our walk through these gardens, with many "rooms" featuring different kinds of South Florida gardens.

This is a beautiful garden you can easily spend 30-60 minutes touring the different sections and viewing the artwork on display. The doorsteps to the library are made of actual corals (illegal now) which were very beautiful. When we visited, it was empty so we had a nice quiet stroll.

Thought the Sior one was Maleficent when we first saw it.got closer and it kind of made me think of a character that might be used in Howl's castle. Liked the recovery wing and the... More

This venue provides a nice break when visiting Palm Beach. There are several garden areas and sculptures to view. We particularly enjoyed the Chinese garden. But if you want to be fully informed about the property, stop and get a brochure before you wander around. We picked up one as we were leaving and found it interesting to learn that... More

This was a lovely garden with sculptures dispersed throughout. There are benches to sit and contemplate or just get out of the Florida sun. I happened to visit on a day when the library was closed, so was unable to see that.

We walked through the gardens and enjoyed it very much, especially the 'jungle' to the right as you first enter. Many park benches and very peaceful and a variety of tropical plants.

This is a hidden gem in Palm Beach. It is located on Royal Palm Way as soon as you cross over the Royal Palm Bridge. The parking lot and entrance is on the side street. This garden has a little of everything. It is beautiful and well maintained. We did not know about this hidden gem until someone at the... More
