All aspects are top level. Gardens, library for kids and the events are over the top. The lectures are world class and the people working there could not be nicer. Parking is not bad even for big events

At the intracoastal, has a walkable showcase, a native drought tolerant tropical group of plants. A towering sausage tree, with fruit. Other themes include Asian garden, formal garden, sculpture garden featuring various foliage, succulents, palms. It's a library, that has lectures and workshops. I enjoyed this attraction.

A nice little oasis next to the intracoastal waterway. I visited only the gardens/grounds on an extremely hot/humid day, but it was worth it. The grounds and buildings are pristinely well-kept and maintained. In addition to the numerous sculptures, there are a few fountains and many interesting plants/flowers/trees.

The gardens are very beautiful. It is a wonderful place to stroll and the photo ops are endless. Enjoy exploring the gardens or even bring a picnic. Can't beat the price, free!

I attended a special event here and it was lovely and surprisingly, it's free to get in too! The gardens are lush and pristine and there are beautiful sculptures throughout the gardens. This is a calming, quiet place to take a walk with a loved one or alone.

I love the lotus garden! This place feels very calming and serene, and it's almost pretty quiet as far as amount of visitors while I'm there. Makes for a great spot to meditate or read a book.

To think a garden this breath-taking is free is unbelievable. The brochure provides wonderful history and explanation of the different sections. Don't miss this piece of heaven.
