Stumbled on this place driving around key west. Its right on the beach and across from the dog park.. The garden club did a great job with the plants and upkeep. The attraction doesn't cost but they do accept donations. A beautiful place for pictures. The lady at the desk was nice.

We popped in as part of our bike tour. Highly recommend to everyone. Got the brief history upon entering and then free to explore. So many plants, lovely views and interesting info. The Garden Club has done a fabulous job with the old fort!

This was an unexpected visit. We saw it on a trolley stop and said we should stop and see the gardens. It is free (Although a Donation would be nice) The plants and the trees and geckos were awesome/ We enjoyed our time there !

They do accept donations but the ladies who worked there were happy to tell you tidbits about the property. They were really nice and the gardens were very interesting with the strangler fig trees. Worth a stop if you are out on a bike.

Fifteen years ago I was married at West Martello Tower. It's a beautiful place to visit. A must see while in Key West.

Plants and flowers are amazing, so much work has gone into these gardens. Definately worth a walk through. Free entry but they do welcome donations.

A great stop....right near Higgs Beach. Free, though there is a donation box if you wish. Just beautiful and serene with paradise on the other side of you!

This place is exquisitely laid out, with lots of surprise natural features around every corner, including the windswept ocean beach and an archway formed by, I think, a giant fig tree.
