There was no one else here when we came so was very quiet. Enjoyed wandering among the plants,paths and statues. Loved most of the statues. 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

There is a wonderful place in Palm Beach Florida that has not only beautiful gardens, but an auditorium, with classes, book reviews, seminars, movies, and much more. Atruly wonderful place to soak up some culture.

I was visiting in Boca Raton and saw a blurb in the Palm Beach post. This is such a gem and so not known. Selfish me ( and I understand why) I wish there was a Bistro just so I could have lunch amidst beauty. The sculpture garden next to the " test" garden is equally breathtaking. I should explain...

They have a really wonderful library with lots of atmosphere. They have cultural activities all winter. Stop by and pick up the brochures highlighting all the activities. The grounds are lovely as well.

We only visited the gardens after a day of walking around Palm Beach. This is a wonderful place, the combination of nature, design and art. Great thought and planning are evident and it was a joy to wander through and spot unusual plants in interesting combinations, perfectly maintained punctuated by water features and inspired sculpture. It was my favorite part... More
