“Beautiful tropical gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Tropical, shady garden great for strolls during the cooler months.
Located in a suburban area with large parking lot and only $5 entrance fee. The farmers market on weekends is very popular as well as the art shows and jazz concerts throughout the year.

“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.
