“Worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Went there on a Friday and the weather was fantastic for strolling. Bought a tram tour in order to see areas you might not able to see and reach by foot. Love the flora/fauna. Tall and big trees all around which was awesome. The bird aviary was great as you can walk around with variety of birds, pelicans, ibis and ducks. Peacocks are all over the ground and if you get lucky sometimes displaying and spreading their beautiful feathers. We were also able too watch the wildlife encounter which was both informative and educational. You can also visit and have a guided tour for the Wray home. You can also see panthers, bobcats, turtles, bear, alligators, vultures, owls and other variety of birds. There is a large area for the bright colored flamingos. It was great to watch them playing around. I also spotted a swan in the island of the ibis. This place is a great for relaxing with nature. Highly recommended and would return in the future.

“We had a great day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Six of us spent the dash at flamingo gardens. We had such fun! We took the very informative tram ride and saw the animal show. The animal exhibits were well done and the animals are obviously well cared for. It was the flamingo festival the day we were there with food and vendors. We had a great time and will definitely return!

“Flora and fauna and more, oh my!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

First time here for us and another couple who have lived in South Florida over 30 years. We came during Flamingo Fest, which just added a little extra. This is a lovely spot for the incredible variety of plant life. As others have said, it is a rescue habitat for injured animals. Photo opportunities abound. The tram tour is worth the extra 4 bucks as it goes to ares you cannot otherwise see. Excellent commentary. Look on their website for a discount coupon.

“Great Florida wild life and beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

What a gem of a place so close to Fort Lauderdale! A rescue for injured birds and animals; they bring in mates, then release the healthy offspring back into nature. Gorgeous landscaping and interesting birds and mammals.
A great place for a serene walk.
