This is a nice place, paved for wheelchairs or strollers. Lots of gorgeous palms and plants. Well kept, but not terribly well marked. We couldn't tell where we had been because there is very little signage. Unfortunately, we went to the Florida Botanical Gardens yesterday, so we were a bit spoiled, I guess. The plants, etc aren't real well labeled, which is frustrating for non-natives who don't know what anything is. So, a little over-priced for us. Since the FBG are free.

The trip was amazing! The animals and plants were gorgeous and the whole garden was so peaceful and relaxing. I saw a photo online and thought it must had been edited but when I went, the gardens were so breathtakingly beautiful I must have taken over 30 photos! I would recommend to almost everyone of every age because the kids (and even me) enjoyed feeding the coy fish, and relaxing on the hill.

Nice garden with very mature trees and palms since the garden is over 100 years old. Easy paths to walk around. Smaller than expected so it took about one hour. Gift shop was disappointing. Look online as there are various offers for discounted tickets which made it worthwhile.

We’re in the area on a beautiful early fall day and are so glad we stopped in.
The gardens are simply lovely! You meander through the path to see some very old native Florida plants.
There are plenty of places to sit and just take it all in. It’s shady for the most part thanks to some decades old trees. If you’ve never seen a Rainbow Eucalyptus you won’t believe your eyes.
Look for a Groupon for your tickets and stop into the Southern Bay Bakery near by.
We wandered for less than an hour.

Don't skip this experience - if you appreciate natural beauty, this place is so unbelievably beautiful! Saw clip on YouTube but absolutely didn't do it justice when you see it in person!!
Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!

Went to a Harry Potter wedding there...very hot and humid..did a unique walk thru of the gardens, if you are interested in seeing one of every kind of tree or plant but if you are not..skip it!

Lovely garden, once private, with springs, tropical plants and flowers, and birds. Not too big, good to visit even for elderly. Gift shop had many beautiful items.

A hidden gem! Beautiful & lush greenery with so many things to learn! Great place for casual photos. The gift shop had a ton of fun little trinkets and the staff was very friendly!

Purchased tickets on Groupon, which made it a great deal!

First time visiting. It was very hot and humid. There was plenty of shade and benches where needed to sit. My favorite was the flamingos. The flowers were beautiful. More birds or wildlife would be nice. But overall a pretty place to visit.
