We paid for this visit by using our annual ticket ticket that we purchased from Denver Botanic Gardens. We went not expecting much. The parking lot was muddy, not paved, and gave the impression that this garden was going to be disappointing. Not so, we quickly found out. Everything here was beautiful: flowers, plants, trees, birds, gators, and even a... More

Thank you for visiting and for using the AHS reciprocal privileges. It must have just rained before you came as our parking lot is in a very low area and we are working on solutions to this annoying problem. But we are so glad that you did not let it affect your visit. We thank you for writing such a... More

Nice place but not a lot to see. Would have prefer a more interactive show with animals. A bit small for the price.

Dear Lionel, Thank you for visiting and for sharing your thoughts. We are sorry that you were disappointed in our Wildlife Encounter show but our shows are not interactive if you mean that you would have liked to see tricks or learned behaviors. More

What an unexpected surprise. Sure wish we had more than a few hours at the gardens. This was a short stop for us after our cruise and before our air flight home. Such beautiful grounds and birds.

Staying in South Beach and using a Lonely Planet guide to plan different trips we were able to find this interesting and informative day trip. Flamingo Gardens was one of the places recommended so we decided to check it out. Without using a rental car it would have taken several buses to get here so we used Uber which wasn't... More

it was kind of disappointing, many areas looked to be under construction. They had peacocks walking all over the place. The flamingo pit was ok. We got through in a couple of hours because we stalled in the AC in the shop to check things out.

I came here with my children (12 and 7), along with my mom and sister for the day. We found it pretty easily with the help of signs along Flamingo Road and the large sign out front. There is free parking in front of the main buildings. Adult ticket price is $19.95 and children (3-11) cost $12.95. There is a... More

This wildlife preserve features botanical gardens, Florida wildlife, an educational wildlife encounter, and a short, but interesting tram ride, as well as the old Wray residence. The gift shop is full of interesting souvenirs (for those so inclined). Several of the exhibits are being renovated. A most pleasant way for families with children to spend an afternoon!
