“Excellent little botanical garden tucked away in mid-city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I hope everyone visiting this lovely and informative little botanical garden drops at least a few dollars in the donation jar, because it really is a treasure to the city and to anyone visiting the island.

“Free and Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very cool place to stop if you're in the area. Lots of amazing trees and plants to look at, all growing over a historic site. Best part is... it's free! You should stop here and walk around the grounds. You'll get a quick talk from the groundskeeper when you first walk in, to explain the place. They even have a free water from a water cooler.

“A unique garden by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a very special place to visit. You're right on the oceanfront.
This old fort has been cleverly changed into a bright and colorful exotic garden. Plant lovers will go crazy for this place.

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.
