We loved our visit to the wonder gardens. Staff were all amazing and the grounds are lovely. My kids enjoyed seeing all the reptiles and birds and getting to walk with the flamingos and feed an alligator. Worth a visit!

We were in Bonita for Feb. and March and went to Wonder Gardens twice with our grandchildren. We all loved feeding the alligators and flamingos, talking with Casey the cockatoo and just wandering about. Also saw snake shedding its skin.
