Perfect setting, fabulous shade trees surround the property. Exotic flowers, abundant greenery. Allow plenty of time to leisurely stroll the grounds. You will love the view of Sarasota Bay and finds lots of benches to soak in the beauty of it all.

Beautiful tropical plants in a tranquil setting. After walking around for a while, we sat by the bay and enjoyed the view. I wanted to return the next day and wished I had purchased the annual membership.

If a tour is offered while you are there, take it! You learn a lot more than just going by yourself. Beautiful orchids!

These breathtaking gardens also have breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay. So be sure to relax and take it all in on one of the benches provided for your enjoyment. The docents are very helpful with your questions of "what's that?" I took my 93 year old Dad there, and everything was easily accessible. Extensive collection of orchids and bromeliads. Beauty beyond beauty!
