“We never stop enjoying this fabulous place...”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

It doesn't matter what time of year, Flamingo Gardens is always brilliant and brimming with new flowers and exhibits…On a hot summer morning the kids fed the Ibises and Flamingos as well as the Peacocks…the flowers of summer were beautiful and colorful and visiting the Wray's 'Summer' Home was special…they turned orange groves into one of the loveliest Botanical Gardens as well as a home for many rescue animals and local fauna…enjoy! Very family friendly

“Peaceful”

I have passed this place many times and I finally went in. Its under construction but by what they have fixed up; beautiful. Great place to enjoy what nature brought us and value it.

“Surprised”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I had driven by this place many times and never stopped. My wife and kids went without me one day and came back with great reviews. I had to see for myself and I am glad i did. Great history in a peaceful and beautiful setting. The kids love the place and they always have special events going on. We liked it so much we bought the family membership passes if you like being outdoors you should give a try. On a side note, they make some great smoothies!

“A Beautiful and Peaceful Sanctuary”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Flamingo Gardens does feel oddly "old Florida" to me. There is a lovely, shady garden path with beautiful plants...we went in May and a ton of stuff was in bloom...and some rather impressive trees. There is also a very nice aviary with an excellent variety of birds. There are also caged rescue birds, a black bear and a Florida Panther.

There were also some really beautiful peacocks wandering around, showing themselves off and being haughty and beautiful.

I am a person who...I have mixed feelings about the animals on display thing, but nothing there set off any alarms. The animals all looked happy and comfortable, and the workers seemed to really like the animals they are in charge of. One of the workers was kneeling on the ground having, I swear, a conversation with a duck.

So, all in all, a great experience.

Thank you for visiting, and yes, our workers are so passionate about what they do that they will sit on the sidewalk and converse with a duck! We try not to keep animals caged. We will release any animals that are able to be released. But the ones that will not make it in the wild stay here. We hope to see you again!
