“Excellent little botanical garden tucked away in mid-city”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I hope everyone visiting this lovely and informative little botanical garden drops at least a few dollars in the donation jar, because it really is a treasure to the city and to anyone visiting the island.

“Free and Beautiful!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very cool place to stop if you're in the area. Lots of amazing trees and plants to look at, all growing over a historic site. Best part is... it's free! You should stop here and walk around the grounds. You'll get a quick talk from the groundskeeper when you first walk in, to explain the place. They even have a free water from a water cooler.

“A unique garden by the sea”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a very special place to visit. You're right on the oceanfront.
This old fort has been cleverly changed into a bright and colorful exotic garden. Plant lovers will go crazy for this place.

“Nice Hidden Garden”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The botanical garden at the tower is small but well-maintained and a nice place to get away from Duval St., relax, and enjoy the tropical beauty.
