Nice place to visit with the family, very educational and entertaining. Take the train tour and learn about exotic plants and uses. The walk around and enjoy a stroll surrounded by nature and fresh air.

Exotic tastes and smells await you at the county park where you are encouraged to eat the scenery! We hopped on a small tram for a guided tour (which is included in the admission fee) and spent a wonderful hour with an entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. She stopped frequently to have us smell leaves and sample fruit which we... More

Truly informative. You can walk but I recommend you take the small train, lady driver stops and talks about different plants and trees. Really enjoyable.

I went with my wife and found this to be fascinating. We had a great tour guide and sampled many different fruits. I learned a lot and my wife really liked it. Our 1 hour tram tour lasted 1.5 hours and we would have gone longer. You can walk as much as you wish. Easily the best tour for $8... More

This was a very relaxing and interesting experience. We were lucky enough to arrive just as the tour was starting. Our tour guide, Kent, was excellent. Just the right personality. We learned a lot of facts about fruits and spices. It would not have been anywhere near as informative without the tour. A very inexpensive few hours.

We arrived before 11am. We had an interesting tram ride through the park with the ability to try some of the fruit. It was fascinating to here about the story of many of the tropical fruits. You are able to walk around the park at your leisure as well and there are herbs and other plants and spices along with... More

We arrived at the fruit and spice park at noon and found out that the next tram did not leave till 1:30. We were still excited to walk around with the map they gave us. There was very little signage to tell us what kind of trees they had, and many of the signs did not have the common name.... More

A must see for gardeners, especially those from South Florida. A chance to see and even sample fruits that are unfamiliar, and others that are more common. Tram tour is quite enjoyable and included in the admission price ( only $8 ). Tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. A treat for kids and adults alike.
