This place is definitely worth visiting, especially if you are looking for a nice place to just relax and take in what Key West has to offer. This place is small, but beautiful. You get a nice view of the water from this place.

This garden underwent a lot of changes and loss due to the hurricane, so I guess that’s why I can only rate it a 3 at the moment.
