Beautiful and off the beaten path. What a lovely view, and you can see Robert the doll. Well taken care of.

“Nice Hidden Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The botanical garden at the tower is small but well-maintained and a nice place to get away from Duval St., relax, and enjoy the tropical beauty.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is the best place in all of Key West. The garden clubs take care of it and clearly it is loved. You may make a donation as you arrive or leave but there is no fee. So very beautiful !

“Nice lush place to get away from busy kw!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My husband and I took the time to enjoy this lush tropical garden while looking for something low key to do for the day. We took the citiview trolley around the island looking for less obvious attractions. One of the stops was west Martello tower. It is the location for the key west garden club. Lots of pride and dedication is put into the grounds. It is covered with many different plants and trees. It is lush and shaded so it would be perfect to escape the hot sun. It is run on donations only so there is not a set fee to get in. At the main desk there was a volunteer that explained the history of the tower and the significance of the garden club. He was very passionate when walking about the garden club and the history of the fort. This is certainly a must see when touring key west.
