Great little piece of KW History and you can visit Robert the Doll! But don't take his photo unless you ask!!

My husband and I stopped here for a pleasant little walk through the beautiful landscape! Wonderful plants, flowers and wildlife. The volunteers were nice and helpful. Well worth the trip to visit!

“It was fun”

We enjoyed the tower and was able to see the whole island from the top. It was very beautiful and educational.

“Nice gardens, off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2015

This is down at the south end of the island. There was a long line and limited parking at the "southernmost point" monument. but on a Sunday morning there was plenty of parking and lovely strolling though the West Martello Tower. It is the home of the Key West garden club, and there are lots of peaceful nooks and crannies, such as the gazebo overlooking the ocean. This would be a great place to bring a book and veg out. There is no fee, but donations are appreciated. It doesn't take long to stroll through. It looks like there was some need to some areas to be cleaned up a little, but it's all maintained by volunteers and they can only do so much. The orchid collection was lovely. So if you want to find a peaceful beautiful spot away from the more touristy spots, this is a gem.
