We had purchased a year membership to another park that included this botanical gardens. We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and serene the gardens were. Little paths walking around the property are very nice. Beautiful Bonsai Garden also

Lovely Botanical garden with a nice variety of plants to enjoy. Special little spots for reflection along with a large display of Bonsai Plants. Pleasant surprise around every corner.

This is a lovely spot to visit and they offer classes in growing shrubs, items for sale to plant and various items to help with your growing gardens. They also are reprinted at the Saturday ft pierce market and have fund raising drives.

This is a very well planned, beautiful garden in any season. A particular favorite are the Bonzai trees which are meticulously groomed in many different shapes. This is a wonderful place to relax and meditate or pray with nature all around you. They have a gazebo and it is a popular spot for weddings.

My family is visiting from Germany, and I thought, it would be a good idea to show them some local plants. What better place then a botanical garden. When we arrived, we were greeted by very unfriendly personnel, I was embarrassed, but it only got worse. The garden is run down and not maintained well, there was trash and weeds.... More

I found these gardens to be very beautiful and appeasing to the eyes. My grandchildren loved it! We went when they had the Lego display, creating bees, etc with the legos.

We went with three little girls and enjoyed so much this garden. Is small, beautiful, cute and so peaceful. The bonsai area is amazing. The lady in the shop was lovely. We spend two hours in the garden and was a perfect afternoon.

We went for the yard sale in a couple of months ago. We like that kind of thing. We were surprised to see the Bonzai Garden with trees older than me. Each had a plaque in front with its age and history. The rain forest area was cool, the butterfly area had some different beauties. Its a well kept serene... More

What a lovely oasis and great way to spend a few hours, just off the main drag (Rt. 1) in Ft. Pierce, FL. It is a living museum filled with butterflies, flowers, a rain forest, a waterfall, native plants, children's garden and lovely trails. The bonsai collection is the largest in the US and laid out nicely. We took 2.5... More
