Owner description: Tropical gardens set in an old fort
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was a very interesting historic site! And, it is free (requested donation, but not required). Wear bug spray!! We went on a cool rainy day and I got ate up by mosquitoes! Beautiful gardens, interesting structure and history. Worth the stop.

Beautiful at every twist and turn in this old civil war fort that is taken care of by the local Garden Club. They do breathtaking decorating near Christmas and just as lovely during the rest of the year. Great place for taking photos, inside and outside.

We happened to see this while on the trolley tour around the island. Thankfully we did. It is filled with so many beautiful gardens and trees and things to see. Every turn was a new surprise! They only request donations! When we visit again, we will definitely go back!

It's difficult for me to put into words the amount of enjoyment I got from this place. Totally my favorite thing in Key West. First, I just think it was inspired to take this old fort (we saw the other one, and it was just plain ugly) and turn it into a garden. Then there were just so many nice touches: a couple of rooms of orchids. A tunnel through a tree. A bell on a hill. Some statues. A little waterfall. A butterfly garden. I could go on. There's no admission fee, but we happily gave a donation to help them keep up this beautiful place.
