“Simply Beautiful Gardens-And It's Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Do yourself a huge favor and come stroll these amazing, lush tropical gardens. You will find plants and trees from all over the world here and their flamingo lake will stop you in your tracks to ooh and aah. This is the old Parrot Jungle and the pathways are lovely and shaded. So much to see here. You can feed the fish and turtles in the ponds. There is a splash pad area ($3) and even a petting zoo. But it's the gardens that you will fall in love with. Take time to read the plaques in the ground below the trees. Very interesting. Bring small bills and quarters (dollars for ice cream machine and quarters for fish food). Great, great place to come alone or bring the kids.

“My dream wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

As soon as I walked into this garden I knew that this is the place I would get married. My dream came true on Nov 13th, 2011. The scenery is all you need. The lake with the swans...the peacocks walking around....the lush green tropical gardens with small hidden waterfalls where ever you look. Simply amazing and absolutely picture perfect =-)

“The most beautiful gardens in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This site used to be the old Parrot Jungle. The area is just gorgeous! Flamingos still live on the lake! Fish still swim in the ponds. A great place to sit and relax.

“Beautiful gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The gardens were Parrot Jungle many years ago. Enjoyed walking the paths and checking out all the fish in the ponds. When we were there a band was playing Sousa marches which made it extra special.

“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.
