We are a small Garden, just 2.6 acres, with a very big mission! We call ourselves an urban oasis in the middle of the glitz and neon of South Beach, a place where locals and visitors can come and enjoy the numerous cultural and artisitic programs that the Garden has to offer. Created as a Miami Beach city park in 1962, the Garden was rejuvenated in the fall of 2011 with a $1.2 Million landscape renovation by acclaimed South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles.We invite you to discover the new features of the Garden – a wetland with red mangrove and pond apple trees, an expansive water garden with cascading oolite fountain, a welcoming entrance plaza, and diverse collection of flowering trees, palms, cycads, orchids, bromeliads and Florida native species.

Beautiful garden with Japanese Garden bit. You can find here flying butterflies, a lot of fish in a lake, turtles, lizards and impressive tropical flora. Admission is free and toilets were super clean.

I can think of many reasons to recommend a visit to the Miami Botanical Garden. It's a well designed garden that showcases the plant diversity of the region. Grab a guide as you enter, it lists many of the plants. Need a spot to picnic where sand won't get in your food? The garden is the place to go. Eat... More

My family of six decided to stop by this garden. We were pleasantly surprised! It was small but packed with crazy beautiful examples of the foliage in Miami. I got some of the best photos! I was with four teens and they all really enjoyed it as well!

This is a great gardens to take a breather away from the hectic city. Its small but well maintained and has beautiful orchids and all kinds of plants. You can leisurely spend an hour or two and if in a hurry, a quick walk. Its free. Parking in front on the street is expensive at $4/hr so better to park... More

I was greatly looking forward to going to the Botanical gardens and I must say it was beautiful, but not as extensive as I was led to believe.

We're so glad, Sue, that you enjoyed your visit to our Botanical Garden but are puzzled where your expectations of a bigger space came from, as we are very clear that we just have 2.6 acres allotted to us from the City of Miami Beach (and we're grateful for that!). We are, after all, located on a tiny 6-mile long... More

We only had a short time here as had a tour booked but wish we had lots longer - stunning part of Miami Beach and a complete change from the hustle and bustle a few blocks away. So serene, teeming with wildlife (never seen so many butterflies in my life) and a fantastic place to spend an hour or 2,... More

Don't know that we've had all that many visitors to the Garden from Scotland - but we hope to have many more like you (and we love your First Minister!) who have obviously grasped what is so special about our little 2.6 acres of beautiful, calm green space in the midst of the hustle and bustle of South Beach.

A Botanical garden hidden right in the heart of Miami Beach. A place to relax and know a little bit more about Florida's plants and beauty. If you really like gardens you can expend about an hour or two there.

We are thrilled, Ricardo, that you as such a senior reviewer on Trip Advisor had a great experience at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden and, in fact, we always call ourselves a "hidden gem" just as your review was entitled.

Gosh, I used to come here quite a lot. This is a beautiful peaceful secluded place to come and enjoy nature in a very well kept setting. You should not miss a visit here, specially if you visit the Holocaust Memorial right next door.
