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

We have been coming for years and decided to have our wedding here. Great choice!! We used the overhang area and had the ceremony set up near the fountain and did oyr vows under the coral sculpted area under the bouganvillea. It has so much to offer for kids. A water play area and a playground. Lots of lush tropical... More

Great place for an afternoon stroll. They also have activities planned throughout the year, including musicals, cooking classes, and other fun activities. If you are in the Miami area, stop by and walk around and enjoy the gardens. The picture I posted is the venue where they hold the musicals. What a great open space. You feel a great breeze... More
