“New Sculptures Added!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Since our visit a year-ago, West Martello has added a slew of new outdoors sculptures which together with the variety of flora make for a fun visit. The volunteers who protect and preserve this property really take great pride in the appearance of the old fort and it shows.

Beautiful gardens to stroll through and see so many different types of plants, trees and flowers. Located right on the beach. The architecture of the old fort is beautiful

“Beautiful Place to Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

This old fort is maintained by the Key West Garden Club and they do a magnificent job. The fort itself is very interesting and the gardens are beautiful. There is not an admittance fees but there is an opportunity to donate to the Garden Club.

“Surprise Garden Inside a Fort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We came expecting to see the military fort but left astounded by the natural beauty it contained. A great place to spend half a day even if you just sit in one of the many viewpoints and soak up the natural beauty. Fabulous foliage and very interesting stories.
