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.

Small, But Lovely!

Compared to most botanical gardens the Miami Beach version is miniscule. Still, it offers a lovely, tranquil setting that is very much worth a visit.

I visited this secluded preserve on a Sunday in February when all around was construction, cranes and highway. While walking through the Japanese gardens, I was gifted with a butterfly landing on the flowering tree 6 inches away from my head! Since I always have my camera on me, of course I grabbed the opportunity! While about 3.5 acres, the... More

Small but charming, restful, beautiful. As a Monarch Butterfly lover from the North I was overjoyed to see pairs of Monarchs flitting about and caterpillars munching on Tropical Milkweed. The Japanese Garden is small but lovely. A nice Oasis in the middle of a bustling town!

A quiet place surrounded by construction noise. The garden is fairly small but nice and furnished. There are comfortable chairs in shady corners near must see plants. It doesn't take longer than an hour to see the entire garden. The construction blocks off the parking lot from the entrance and it is about a 10 minute walk to the entrance... More

I have been to the garden many times before . Last weekend i attended a presentation about orchids, then took a free tour of the garden . G.L the staff member was my tour guide . I learned a good deal about different trees , their uses etc. Standing under the tree called Ylang- Ylang from Indonesia I could smell... More

Like most other reviewers, we visited these small gardens because they are next to the excellent Holocaust Memorial (a must see). Not very much there to be honest. Would have been very tranquil, but there is a huge construction project going on nearby, so it wasn't tranquil at all! Having visited many botanical gardens, this one disappointed - more of... More

Took us a while to work out how to get here, as there's loads of building work going on, and roads closed. Once we got there,we were very happy that we made the effort. It's only a small park, but they really pack a lot in to it. It would be a lovely place just to chill with a book... More

We went here for about an hour after visiting the holocaust memorial next door ( which was great). The gardens were pretty small but well maintained with a small gift shop. Looks like this place is used for functions/ weddings more than a botanical gardens. It's worth a quick visit after seeing the holocaust memorial.

On our visit to the Art Deco district of South Beach, my husband suggested we should have a restful break in the Botanical Gardens, and it was certainly that. Although the peaceful aspect was somewhat spoiled by the convention centre demolition site next door, the surroundings are really delightful with huge orange butterflies and green macaws fluttering and swooping in...
