“Tropical Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Former Miamian here. We used to go when it was the Parrot Jungle. If you have the time and are nearby, definitely do go. This is how South Dade looked before development. Just simply paradise. Many of the former employees and animals from here are at Parrot Jungle Island.

“ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Compact and jammed packed with beauty. Will take no more than one hour to meander from one end to the other; but allow yourself time to linger. It is a GEM. Often there are art exhibits in the Hibiscus Room; there are concerts on the weekends and a wonderful Farmers Market on Sundays. A "must" in Miami, whether you are a resident or a visitor.

“Little bit of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We attended a art show and the farmers market going on at the same time. It is opened every Sunday to the public till around 2:00 pm outside of the gardens. You could grab something to eat and take inside for picnic in the gardens which is lovely

“Quiet place in busy Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great place to bring coffee and goodies for a morning relaxation break. The gardens are very relaxing if you want to get away from the hussle and bussle of everyday South Florida. Musical events are part of the program every couple of months so look on the website and find out when there is one scheduled. It is a wonderful evening to listen to music in these gardens during the delightful winter months in Miami.

“A fine place if you have an hour to spare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The garden is cheap and definetely worth a visit. Ticket price is low, just 3$ to walk in a tropical garden loaded with turtles and fishes. Personally i thought that christmas decorations were bad taste for a tropical garden, but i suppose that children might disagree, and indeed there are many areas for children, a pet zoo, playgrounds. Despite the sign of a butterfly exhibit, we found no such thing.
Beautiful lake view, peaceful and relaxing place. Botany fans will be delighted.
Big parking outside
