Used to be Parrot Jungle (moved east) till the City of Pinecrest opened it as a park. The same lushious trees and memories remain from yesteryear. Great place to go for lunch, as air did with the family and watched the flamingos frolock about in the lake. Petting zoo for the little ones with sheep and goats to pet and... More

This is the perfect tropical experience...I bring all my Florida visitors here for a stroll among the plush flora and fauna of paradise ( along with a few turtles and iguana s)...once I'm here all my stress has dripped away after a refreshing tropical rain.

Ever since I moved to Miami I've loved how discretely beautiful this place is. With gorgeous gardens and a colorful spectrum of activities throughout the year, this place could welcome all ages travelers. The Banyan Bowl amphitheatre, inside the garden itself is a wonderfully intimate space that provides a space for performances whenever a local activity takes place. I recommend... More

This is a gem of a place. It's family friendly, fun by yourself or even romantic as a couple. First, entry is cheap. Second, it's beautiful! And, third, there are a number of different things to see and do. If you take your kids, you can do the splash play area and have them enjoy the water in a safe,... More

We enjoyed our visit and thought the way that the gardens were mapped out was beautifully done. Lots of things to see and do around the gardens, and we saw people of all ages having a lovely time. It felt so tropical and I saw trees and plants I've never seen before. It's worth checking out the little art gallery... More

Do not come to Miami anytime during the summer unless you're near water, a pool or indoors. We attended a birthday party in the butterfly pavilion. It was sweltering HOT! They had no fans at all in the pavilion. It was not enjoyable at all. The splash park was WEAK! Don't come here unless it is winter time.

Me and my friend visited this beautiful place which is the old Parrot Jungle. There were lots of exotic plants and beautiful gardens, no birds anymore but we did see a turtle and koi. The service was very accommodating. There is a small entrance fee.

Pinecrest Gardens is so much more than a garden...yes, it is a beautiful, lush botanical park full of native flora, but there is also a water park for the kids and a petting zoo. But the best part about Pinecrest Gardens is the Banyan Bowl. This park used to be the old Parrot Jungle, and the Banyan Bowl was where... More
