I love Flamingos and what a cute tranquil place to roam for a afternoon, I fed Flamingoes, been all over the world and never have I been able to get this close to them. Gentle birds with beaks that felt like plastic. there were peacocks and other birds and some pretty gardens, a aviary and a tram car to take you around their nature preserve. the show was informative as they brought out some animals they rescued and they work on the money that is donated. This is not Disney but a nice place that thrilled me! Loved the tranquility there.

We had a few hours to spare before catching our flight home and decided to stop in the Flamingo Gardens. Our 1-year old loves birds and animals and we thought it would be fun. We had a nice self-guided tour and then sat for the wildlife show where a few animals were displayed. We had a nice time and it was a great way to pass a few hours time outside in the sun! There are a ton of birds in the aviary!! Very cool!

A wonderful outing for the family. The garden invites reflection and awe, with giant trees towering overhead. Flamingo Gardens has wonderful facilities and the animals are well-cared for and healthy. Most of the animals were rescued. One of the two bobcats had been hit by a car and bears the scar. Where else to see the majestic Florida panther up close? Or the adorable otters constantly frolicking? We also enjoyed the Wildlife Show; the handler was extremely knowledgeable as she told us about an owl, hawk, baby alligator and possum. Thumbs up! If you are a member of another Park you will get certain benefits!

We took a day trip to visit Flamingo Gardens while staying in Lauderdale by the Sea. This was our third year visiting the area and since our first visit, I've told my husband that I would really like to see flamingos in Florida. Visiting Flamingo Gardens was his solution and we had a great time! Flamingo Gardens is not an "Orlando-type" place and feels a bit like you're stepping back in time, but educational and neat to see some tropical plants, trees and birds. Most of the grounds are self touring and you can take as much or little time as you'd like observing the birds and plants. We were there duing Pea fowl mating season and were told to keep our distance from the Peacocks. We got quite a show though, it seemed around every corner a Peacock was showing off his feathers. We also took the tram tour and saw papaya trees growing like you'd see apple trees in Illinois. Really quite interesting. All in all a good day and I was able to get some really good pictures of some flamingos in Florida!
