We walked through the Botanical Garden after closing time (5PM). It's only a couple of acres but they have many beautiful displays and interesting plants and ponds. Learned a lot about tropical plant life that I had never seen before. And there wasn't a fee! Very relaxing place to sit and rest.
Thank you so much for your kind - and, we think, accurate - review. You are exactly right: we have a lot in the small 2.6 acres allotted to us by the city of Miami Beach. Some visitors, unfortunately, just see this small size and can't see beyond it; others, such as yourself and many others Trip Advisor reviewers, see the wide array of botanical specimens, water elements, the Japanese native garden, edible gardens, and the Florida native garden and celebrate our Garden for what it is - an urban oasis and and educational & cultural platform in the middle of the glitz & glamour of 'America's Riviera'. Oh, let's not forget to mention that there is NO admission - and free WiFi!
