“A tropical, botanical wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

This property, the former location of Parrot Jungle, was acquired several years ago by the Village of Pinecrest, and is now operated as a park and botanical garden. The grounds have been lushly planted with beautiful tropical plants and flowers, and have been refurbished with a water playground for kids (excellent), art gallery, a petting zoo, outdoor dining spots, and a bandshell which offers frequent outdoor jazz concerts. A wonderful place for the family, nature lovers, photographers and artists alike!

“Nature at it's best...a not to be missed space of beautiful and peaceful surroundings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Former home of Parrot Jungle, the space was turned into a beautiful park for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. If you are in the area or just in the market for a park space to spend the day...make the trek to this lovely park. You may even catch sight of the flocks of wild parrots that still inhabit the southern part of the city.

“Perfect place for pictures!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I love this place! We were in Miami visiting family and we wanted to do something everyone could enjoy. There's a playground and a splash pad for the kids and beautiful tropical trees and flowers. They also offer family movie nights.

“The garden that lost it's parrots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I miss the parrots! It is still a beautiful garden, although not as well tended or as interesting since Parrot Jungle left. There is still a small children's farm animal area, and many large trees, as well as the children's water place to play in. There is an Art exhibit area. The best time to go is on a Sunday when the farmers market is outside the garden in the parking area,( you can always park on the street if the lot is full) or on the eveings when they have concerts.

“Perfect!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Wow, this place keeps getting better and better. If it wasn't enough be one of the most beautiful botanical gardens around featuring one of the two rain forests in the Continental United States, they have really ramped up their performing arts events this year and added two festivals...Latin Spice, a food festival in December and Howl-O-Ween, a pet fair and halloween pet parade in costume. Those guys keep getting better and better. Best place for kids, best place for parties and events, best place for movies...If you haven't been to the old Parrot Jungle lately, you might want to pay them a visit soon.
