We are a small Garden, just 2.6 acres, with a very big mission! We call ourselves an urban oasis in the middle of the glitz and neon of South Beach, a place where locals and visitors can come and enjoy the numerous cultural and artisitic programs that the Garden has to offer. Created as a Miami Beach city park in 1962, the Garden was rejuvenated in the fall of 2011 with a $1.2 Million landscape renovation by acclaimed South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles.We invite you to discover the new features of the Garden – a wetland with red mangrove and pond apple trees, an expansive water garden with cascading oolite fountain, a welcoming entrance plaza, and diverse collection of flowering trees, palms, cycads, orchids, bromeliads and Florida native species.

Like most other reviewers, we visited these small gardens because they are next to the excellent Holocaust Memorial (a must see). Not very much there to be honest. Would have been very tranquil, but there is a huge construction project going on nearby, so it wasn't tranquil at all! Having visited many botanical gardens, this one disappointed - more of... More

Took us a while to work out how to get here, as there's loads of building work going on, and roads closed. Once we got there,we were very happy that we made the effort. It's only a small park, but they really pack a lot in to it. It would be a lovely place just to chill with a book... More

We went here for about an hour after visiting the holocaust memorial next door ( which was great). The gardens were pretty small but well maintained with a small gift shop. Looks like this place is used for functions/ weddings more than a botanical gardens. It's worth a quick visit after seeing the holocaust memorial.

On our visit to the Art Deco district of South Beach, my husband suggested we should have a restful break in the Botanical Gardens, and it was certainly that. Although the peaceful aspect was somewhat spoiled by the convention centre demolition site next door, the surroundings are really delightful with huge orange butterflies and green macaws fluttering and swooping in...

It is very well maintained however very small. Nice for a picnic/lunch and get away from all the MIA hustle n bustle. however, beautiful tropical trees and plants would be great for fotos.

Swamp feeling but isn't all of Florida. Could have used some heat control. but it was a fun experience over all.

I enjoyed stopping by the garden the last time I was at Art Basel Miami. It is a friendly and accessible place and a nice amenity for the city of Miami.

Though it seems more interesting for children, the Botanical Garden is a must place to visit in Miami.

This is one of the better botanical gardens I've visited, very gracious, great shade, a well planned space. The wildlife was abundant and natural... we also came here at night for an event and they had lights and plenty of seating for people. Very nice!

Thank izuj
