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.

All the plant life here is interesting and native to south Florida. Grounds are well maintained and the gardens are free to the general public

Parking on residential streets are free or regular street parking is $1.00 an hour. & entrance is free. It would be nice to see more flowers & some... More

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
