“Beautiful Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Pinecrest Gardens is the site of the old Parrot Jungle in Miami. Beautiful garden setting. Little out of the way in South Miami area but worth going if you are nearby. Sunday mornings there is a Farmers Market which is just outside the entrance.

“Garden Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Back in the day, this was the old Parrot Jungle. In the last couple of years it has been transformed into beautiful gardens, preserving many native South Florida plants and trees.

There are also events and concerts throughout the year. There is something for everyone, even a kiddie water park.

During the summer months mosquito repellant is a must.

“Fun for the Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is the best water-play park that is free -- it's the squirt kind. For about 50 years Pinecrest Gardens was the site of the Parrot Jungle (which moved and evolved into Jungle Island), so there are some really nice, well-established, flowering tropical plants. Best part is that everything is free.

“Take your Grand Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

They had a nice water area with all kinds of sprinklers for the kids to run around in, so have their bathing suits with you. Also a nice play ground and places to sit and relax.

“A nice place to visit in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A very nice and beautiful place to visit. The trail was very nice and easy to walk around the garden. If you have kids, they will love the water park. It is a a great place to get wet for the kids and for the adults to relax. I would recommend this Garden if you are in the Miami area.
