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.

Nice... not as big as I expected

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.

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

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. We are small, having just the 2.6 acres allotted to us by the City of Miami Beach, but we are... More

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.

We had gone to the convention center but stop here and we are glad we did. It is a free botanical garden. Nice to walk with your other half.

This was a very pleasant find. The guided tour via mobile was very nice. The trees and plants were well kept. I thought the Coy pond could have been maintained better. There was just so much Monarch Butterfly. Parking was not that bad to find on a Sunday. A nice little family outing. Great place to take pictures for weddings... More

For a Botanical Garden I found this place quite tiny, however it's nice and beautiful. The shop is also a nice place to take a souvenir with you. Free to public, the parking is kind of expensive though.

Enter the Garden (free) and the temperature immediately drops by 10 degrees. It was mostly past peak blooming season when we were there in mid-April, but there were many interesting native and non-native trees and plants. We arrived on foot,and it was a little hard to find the entrance, but once you are in, you can scan a code for... More

We discovered this small garden after visiting the adjacent Holocaust Memorial. The Botanical Garden is a true oasis in non-stop Miami Beach. Take a picnic lunch and sit here and enjoy the plants and the peace. There is a pretty pond, labelled trees, washrooms.
