“Nice for Concert Events Otherwise Admission Over Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is the former Parrot Jungle Gardens started in the 1930s.

The Parrot Jungle owner sold out and moved to Watson Island after the neighbors complained about wedding and party events, which was a way for the Jungle to stay alive.

The garden was better kept and better groomed when it was owned by the Parrot Jungle. The Village of Pinecrest has been slow to keep the garden looking pristine. The garden is situated on a Cypress Hammock and there are several very large Bald Cypress trees that are natural as well as sink holes. Some of these Cypress trees can be seen across the street at the church when this area was not inhabited and civilized for modern man. This includes the canal along 57th Ave to drain the land for building roads and houses.

The garden does provide a nice venue for parties, a visit and attending one of the scheduled ticketed events.

“Reasonable for a visit to tropical gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

If you visit on a Sunday, there is a great farmer's market outside park entrance. Day I visited there was a crafter and vendors sale on inside lawn. Very interesting plants and walkways, the Miami symphony was there day I attended and it was nice to hear the Chrismas music as I walked the park. Loved the site overlooking the lake........the park does need some TLC, but worth the small entry fee. The gardens also hosts many events in their outdoor auditorium. If you are in the area, worth stopping by for a 1 or 2 hour visit.

“Great time!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We love this park.

It's close to coral gables and lots of fun... Nice little park with petting zoo and little water play area. If you want a place to tire out your kids and pass a nice 3 to 4 hours I recommend this park...
